August has a face like nothing anyone has ever seen. Like a screaming and running away kind of face. He has accepted that this is the face he has. Now he has to figure out how to cope with a world that has never seen a face like his. He has been homeschooled his whole life and now for 5th grade, his parents want him to go to school. A regular school. With kids who don't know him. Kids who have never seen him. For fifth grade. I know I have always thought that 5th grade is the hardest school year of anyone's life, much less, someone like August. As we watch him and his classmates grow it is gratifying that none of them are as cruel and heartless as we all know modern children can be. You will tear up and stand up and cheer as you follow along with the life of August, his friends, his sister, her friends and how everyone is affected by what happens in August's life. Yes, everyone deserves a standing ovation, at least once in their lives.

Everyone Can Enjoy This Story About Strength

Children, teenagers, and adults will all enjoy this story. I thought I would be crying again and again throughout, but lucky for me it only happened once. This isn’t a feel sorry for the underdog kind of read. It’s a story that makes you realize how strong people can be. Sometimes we need some help and protection from other people, but sometimes we find that we are strong enough on our own to overcome any obstacle we put our mind to.

Auggie isn’t just an ordinary kid by any means – he’s the bravest I’ve ever read about. I read Wonder in two sittings (it would have been one if I hadn’t started it before bed) and couldn’t get enough. While there are very low moments, there are highs as well – and the fact that everything that happens is totally possible, that makes it that much more touching. This is definitely a read that everyone can take something away from.

    This book kinda relates to me because I had to go to a new school this year and I didn't realize when I am concentrating I make kinda of a buzzing noises. People would laugh at me. Also, My friend faked liking me and I went through phases where I didn't have any friends. I really understood what the message said. This book really connected to my heart.

    Wonder is a book by R.J. Palacio. This book is about a 10 year old boy named August who has a disease called Treacher Collins Syndrome. August has been home schooled all his life and now is going to start going to public elementary school. At first August was reluctant but then he starts to make lots of friends and learns so much at his school. At the end of the story August is glad that he had gone to the elementary school.-Toby.T

    I read this with my seventh grade students in Language Arts. It was a requirement by the school. Some of the kids loved it; most of them hated it. The kids who hated it said it was because it lacked action and it was repetitive. I hated it because the ending is so unrealistic that the real message is lost. Students shouldn't be taught that everything will be fine in the end- that's not the way things work. Also, it is really meant for the lower grades. All of my in-class support teachers couldn't wait for the book to be over.  The only thing I really liked about it was how the different perspectives filled in missing parts of the story.
