Wonder is about a boy with lots of struggles and this book gives an inside as to how August and the rest of the characters look at things from their point of view.
This book is about a boy with a birth defect, who has Treacher - Collins Syndrome and all his struggles in life and school. Each chapter has a different point of view which I really liked, because I didn't have to worry what all the other characters are thinking or doing.
My favorite part is when Auggie gets his standing ovation, because nobody's judging him, and they're happy for him.
I recommend this book for people with Treacher - Collins Syndrome or anyone that gets bullied, because they can connect with August Pullman.

    Wonder by R.J Palacio is an enticing work of fiction appropriate for all ages groups. Wonder tells the story of a boy, August Pullman, suffering from Treacher Collins Syndrome as he goes through the journey that is his first year in public school. While Wonder had much success in capturing the interest of the audience and plot, it suffered in areas regarding character personality and development. Except for Jack and Via, very few characters other than August had any sort of character development. The characters also always seemed to have August on there mind, and hardly any side plots were noticeable that didn't revolve around August and barely any characters had personal problems. All of the characters seemed to fill a stereotypical role to help August in his journey, such as Via, the supportive older sister, or Summer, the gold hearted sweetheart. The novel was successful in some areas, however. Such as plot, which time after time succeeds in engaging the audience. This book also succeeds in showing how the reality is for children who are different, and how they have to deal with bullying and other struggles children do not tend to face. Wonder I recommend to any one who is looking for a hard look at reality for children with Treacher Collins Syndrome.-Brittany G.

    Wonder is about a boy that has T.C.S. Because of this a lot of people make fun of him. August has been homeshooled for his whole life, but finally hes going to school. My favorite part of the story is when August and his friend Jack get chased through the woods by 7th graders and August loses he's hearing aids. I think the book is very good for all people as it gives us hope. -NicholasDP
