Wonder by R. J. Palacio       316 pages

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 y
ou'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 enjoyed reading this story. It was very heartfelt story about acceptance, family, and friendship. I think the author did a good job of creating a realistic young voice. Auggie felt like a real character to me and his journey was sweet and touching. I can see why this is a popular read among its targeted age group. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
