August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school?until now. He?s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you?ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie?s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he?s just like them, despite appearances?
R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.
?Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart?it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!? ? Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories
Rezension: Amazon Best Books of the Month for Kids, February 2012: Wonder is a rare gem of a novel--beautifully written and populated by characters who linger in your memory and heart. August Pullman is a 10-year-old boy who likes Star Wars and Xbox, ordinary except for his jarring facial anomalies. Homeschooled all his life, August heads to public school for fifth grade and he is not the only one changed by the experience--something we learn about first-hand through the narratives of those who orbit his world. August?s internal dialogue and interactions with students and family ring true, and though remarkably courageous he comes across as a sweet, funny boy who wants the same things others want: friendship, understanding, and the freedom to be himself. ?It is only with one?s heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.? From The Little Prince and R.J. Palacio?s remarkable novel, Wonder.-- Seira Wilson
