This heart-warming story is about a young boy called August who was born with a deformed face. August lives with his mom, dad and elder sister, Olivia. August is home-schooled by his mom, because of all the surgery’s he has had to fix different parts of his body, and so he wouldn’t have time to go to school, but now that he doesn’t need anymore surgery’s, August’s parents are thinking about sending him to school for the very first time…
At his school, many people bully him, just because of the way he looks, but he has two or three friends who he knows will be there for him.
Will August survive his new school, or not?
I really enjoyed this book, as it had happy and sad parts which really touched me. I would recommend this to children who enjoy reading books filled with family, friends and emotional parts. I rate this book 5 stars and recommend it for anyone 10+. It definitely gives you the message: “You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.”

This book is about a child ( called August) who's face ( although I don't like saying this word) is deformed. Lots of people bully him and he has gone to school now. People then start to see his inside : a kind, hilarious person and become his friend. Soon everybody is his friend; he has won everybody's heart and an award. His family is proud of him.
This book has been told from different perspective's about their life too. Like August's friend Jack and Summer. And his sister Via. I love this book and recommend this emotional book to everyone !

This book is fantastic. It has loads of amazing features including: tension building; different emotions and a wide range of vocabulary, which benefits people in their writing. This book has a message, which makes you think and feel like you should treat everyone with respect, however I will let you find the main message out for yourself. Read this book!

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.

BEST BOOK EVER. You should read it ASAP. About a boy with a difference.

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
