Synopsis (from Goodreads):

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?

R. J. Palacio has written a spare, warm, uplifting story that will have readers laughing one minute and wiping away tears the next. With wonderfully realistic family interactions (flawed, but loving), lively school scenes, and short chapters, Wonder is accessible to readers of all levels

Review:

I downloaded this book last year, but haven’t really gotten the mood to read it since I was fixated in reading chick flix books more.

Anyway, so I decided to finally read the book and I wasn’t disappointed!

Reading ‘Wonder’ really gives me a good view with life. I first thought that this is a book for kids, but NOPE!. This is actually a good book for everyone — in all ages. The ending even made me cry!

But I can say that this book is definitely a nice read for kids, just to give them a lesson on how to be fair and be sensitive with others, especially for those who were born ‘special’.

Definitely highly recommended!

  1. I’m so happy to read a review for this (and a really positive one) because it was given to me by a friend for World Book Day and I still haven’t picked it up. I really must do so.

    • It is really nice. I’m even planning to buy the actually book since I only read it from my ebook collection. Nice gift for kids too!

      Thanks for dropping by! Enjoy reading! 🙂
