Soon to be a major film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay.
'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'
Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.
Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. 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?
WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

I think Wonder is an amazing inspiring book about a boy who has had many surgeries and is commented on his face. This book inspires people and teaches a real life story of not to judge people by face as face doesn’t matter. Personality matters. This book is an excellent inspiring book for all ages especially kids and remember don’t let others say anything to you.Be strong and be fearless. I strongly recommend kids to read this book.
