    August is a normal boy... at lest on the inside. people see him differently just because of his face. It is a little demented, but he is a VERY sweet very shy boy and wonderful boy in every way you can think of, smart, playful, just a friendly person and anyone dissent enough can see that. <: (;

    People have stared at August Pullman his entire life. And, unfortunately, not in a good way. You see, Auggie is different. He has a condition that makes his face look all jumbled up, so to speak. Now, starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep school, his first time attending a school outside his home, he is afraid it'll be hard. But Auggie is not a quitter. After some thought, he decides to go. Before school officially starts, he gets a tour by some of the students. Auggie takes an instant disliking to Julian, the rich kid who acts like an angel in front of adults but it a total jerk with kids. Jack, another student leading the tour, is really cool and he and Auggie become fast friends. Auggie also befriends a bright girl named Summer, who doesn't care how Auggie looks. At school, Auggie faces mean name-calling and bullying. Classmates avoid Auggie, even making a game out of it-- whoever touches Auggie and doesn't immediately wash their hands gets the Plague! Luckily, his friends are there to stick up for him. But it gets worse. Soon, a full war has broken out between Julian and his cronies against August and his friends. People begin to realize Julian isn't a great kid, and move to Auggie's side. Nearing the end of the school year, the whole grade goes on a sleep-away field trip. During an outdoor movie night, Auggie and Jack find themselves in a tough situation- but boys previously on Julian's side turn out to be great guys and help and defend Auggie. Through friend troubles, bullying, and people staring at him, Auggie works through life one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. His year has actually turned out to be a great one. Wonder by R.J. Palacio really touched my heart. It was funny, emotional, and just beautiful. Auggie Pullman really is a wonder.

    This book is a very sad but inspiring. It tells a story about a boy who is different and the journey his life takes when he goes to public school. Different isn't bad, but inspiring.

    This book is a great read for boys and girls of all ages. I loved following Auggie through his challenges with his facial abnormality and how he navigated through his problems to overcome his fears. As he enters public school for the first time, he is faced with many difficult challenges and bullies but he manages to find ways to sort through tough situations. It is a powerful read for kids of all ages and I highly recommend it to everyone. It teaches many life lessons and I learned a lot from reading this book and seeing how powerful words can be to people.

    Wonder is about a young boy, August Pullman, who has a facial abnormality called the Treacher-Collins Syndrome, who has to deal with many effects to his unusual appearance. Some kids use hateful language, and some people suggest that Auggie is mentally deficient. However, readers should find it inspiring and uplifting. The Author writes the book in many different points of view's -- Auggie's, some of his friends', his sister's -- and the different points of view are mostly very well-realized and show the true thoughts and feelings of the other characters. Wonder was just amazing! I think the book should be read in classes to teach students to respect kids like Auggie.
