Wonder by RJ Palacio review

I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?

I loved this book! It was so great. A great read to teach kids about bullying and being different, yet not so different. 

I loved that it was from multiple POVs. It was a great way to get to know the characters. Summer and Jack were favorites, besides August. 

The only thing that bugged me was during Justin’s POV nothing was capitalized. Not names, not the first word of a sentence, NOTHING! Just drove me nuts. Other than that it’s an excellent book. Highly recommend it for all ages. I’m excited for the movie now. 

4/5 🌟
