Publisher Description

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid--but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Wonder, a #1 New York Times bestseller, begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" --indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder, #choosekind#1 New York Times bestsellerUSA Today bestsellerTime Magazine's 100 Best Young Adult Books of All TimeNew York Times Book Review Notable BookWashington Post Best Kids' Book"In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner filled with characters you can't help but root for." --Entertainment Weekly"Rich and memorable." --The New York Times"A beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation." --Wall Street Journal
