A rare gem

Wonder is a rare gem of a novel--beautifully written and populated by characters who linger in your memory and heart.

Wonder of a Book

Wonder-ful Book!

Best book

This is one of my favorite books of all time. It touched my heart, and that touch won't leave me now.

A good book

My class read this book and it was good and fun.

A Must Read for All!

You know how sometimes your memory of something is very different from your actual experience? I just finished reading this book for the second time, confirming that wasn't the case here. This book was everything I remembered it was. As a teacher, I think this is a must-read for students of all ages, used as a read aloud when appropriate. I have found myself recommending it to adults as well.

Also, Palacio just released an e-book called The Julian Chapter, which is a sequel of sorts to Wonder. I had high expectations, and she met them. Read them both!

Amazing book

It is an amazing book that makes you realize that don't ever judge a book by its cover




This a very good book!!!!!!

Really Good

This book is an interesting and fun book. It talks about middle school


This book is awesome. You can't stop reading it.


I got Wonder for my birthday, read it the next and loved it


This is a really good book. I think parents and kids would like Wonder. This book is about a kid who struggles through life with a face problem. This book is awesome!


I liked Wonder. I liked that August had interests of many kids his age. Palacio did a great job especially since this was her debut book.


This was a touching book. I couldn't put it down. For the moms out there, you might want to have a box of tissues nearby.


This book was a wonderful but at times tear needed book. "I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking its probably worse" Beautiful.



Life Changing

I think this book really changed how I look at "different" people out there. I think so because the storyis told from mostly the "different"person, Auggie's, point of view. It describes how people starred at him which really changed me.

An Excellent Read!

I found this book to be amazing and it really made me think about people from a different point of view. I don't want to spoil the ending or the whole book, but I would highly recommend it for anybody but especially those in middle school. The main character is August (Auggie) and he has trouble due to his appearance. I feel like R.J. Palacio is strong in having the reader feel what Auggie is feeling.
