Wonder

R J Palacio

Now an Oscar nominated film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay.

My name is August. I wont describe what I look like. Whatever youre thinking, its 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 dont make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids arent 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, hes being sent to a real school – and hes dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted – but can he convince his new classmates that hes 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.
