Summary

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.

Feel good

Heartwarming story about how tough life can be if you're not considered 'normal'. This is the story of August, who has a facial disfigurement, and how he survives his first year at school. The story is told from his point of view, along with the point of view of the peers around him. It's easy to grow to love Augie and by the end of the book the world feels right again!

Amazing

A book that is guaranteed to take your child on an amazing journey - engrossing, entertaining, enlightening - there aren't enough superlatives you can apply to this book to do it justice.
