Review: Wonder by R.J. Palacio



Title: Wonder
Author: R.J. Palacio
Series: none
Genre: contemporary, middle grade

You can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

August Pullman wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things. He eats ice cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside.

But Auggie is far from ordinary. Ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids don't get stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches forever, Wonder is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

INSPIRING!!!


A life-affirming story of a wonderful boy named Auggie Pullman.
My name is August
I won’t describe what I look like.
Whatever you’re thinking,
It’s probably worse.
As such being bullied is bad but to fit in with others when they see you differently is the worst. All the while I was stuck between sympathizing with his predicament and feeling proud of him for blending in with others by being himself. Auggie is such a brave and kind-hearted boy, he is the cutest thing I’ve had the pleasure of reading. He will always and forever remain close to my heart.

“Everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives because we all overcometh the world.” -Auggie Pullman

Auggie’s story made my heart melt and I couldn’t stop my tears from flowing down. Wonder is an uplifting book that will put a smile on your face while your eyes are all welled up. This book for me was a great insight into human behavior and taught such a valuable meaning on friendship, family, loyalty, courage, kindness, and character.

“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”
