Now, for the first time, he’s being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted – but can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all?

I loved this so much I could not stop reading it in my spare time at home. These kind of books I would happily read. I like the fact there are small chapters in big parts which make it easier to read for me. There are 315 pages in this book just for you to know. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. You can't blend in when you where born to stand out!

Wonder teaches you that we are all different but equal. It is about a boy called August who wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old that does ordinary things. He makes children run away screaming in playgrounds and is stared at wherever he goes.

You can't blend in when you're born to stand out is a very touching thing to say.It makes an old grumpy man like Scrooge cry a river.So if you ever see somebody with a dis-formed face and is coming to your school, treat them nicely.

This book shows how different people's view are and how people make judgements of others.

August Pullman seems like your average 10 year old boy. He likes playing X-Box, riding his bike and eating lots and lots of ice cream, except there's something different about him. August was born with a facial disfigurement. He knows that people are always going to stare and his face, he knows there are going to be double takes in the street and he knows that people are going to want to ask questions. But the most humbling thing about August is he doesn't let that affect him. After all, isn't it good to be different when everybody else is the same? August has always felt like a bit of an outsider compared to his peers; he's undergone countless operations and has been home-schooled all his life. Needless to say, when he and his family make the decision for him to start 5th grade in public school, he didn't exactly warm to the idea at first. The story was told from different perspectives of the different children in August's class; you could see how the other children perceived his disfigurement, and some never mentioned the issue and others have burning questions which they are not sure how to ask.

I think people should read this book because this book is saying it doesn't matter what u look like in life or that you're different than other people because everyone and everyone should be glad for everyone's differences.

It was full of emotion

Wonder is an amazing book which explains life from the point of view of a boy with unfortunate circumstances. August is a boy who has a sadly deformed face but still faces life with a brave face . It made me realise how lucky I really am ...
Recommend : 10+
Recommend : girls and boys

This book is very inspiring. It is about a boy called August who is starting school. Sound fine, right? No, Auggie has a very misshapen face that he was born with and he has never been to school before. Can you imagine that? Would you be able to make friends?
