Additional Details

Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.

Be kinder than necessary. That sums it up for me.

A rare gem

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

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.
