WONDER is the funny, sweet and incredibly moving story of Auggie Pullman. Born with a terrible facial deformity, this shy, bright ten-year-old has been home-schooled by his parents for his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the stares and cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, Auggie is being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. 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, underneath it all?
"Wonder" is a really emotional book. It has happiness, sadness, anger, confusing moments and moments of worry. Once you read it you want to read again and again. It is appropriate for people ten years old and up. This book shows you the mind of someone with a deformed face and how sad it can make people who are stared at or excluded. August is just another boy. Some people in the real world have deformed faces and people stare at them and exclude them. People need to look beneath the surface and realise that the person with a deformed face is just another person. This book has a really important lesson. You can't judge a book by its cover, just as you can't judge a person by their face.
Wonder is my favourite book! I love how it creates an image in your mind. It is the best book! I want to read it over and over and over and over! It is appropriate for age groups from about 10-100! I love this book - best book ever! I am going to marry Auggie! I love him! It mad me happy and sad, angry and worried, it opened up a whole new passageway of empathy, and I loved it.
This book is amazing, it shows you the perspective of a person with a deformity. It was great how she showed different perspectives and showed what they were feeling. It makes you put yourself in someone else's shoes and understand what they are going through. I love how for every person the author changed the way they wrote and changed the words they used, for example Justin had many spelling errors and didn't use correct punctuation. This book gives you lots of different moods and throws in surprises. Sometimes when you read a book it doesn't feel realistic but wonder is based on real life and it is amazingly realistic.
I think wonder is as very inspiring book because of the way August pushes through all of his problems. The mood of the book was changing a lot throughout the book. Some of the time it was all high and then the next moment it was down because someone said something inappropriate to August.
I think Wonder is an amazing book. I think it shows how horrible we can be to people just because of their looks and also how lucky we are that we don't have a horrible disease like this one. I now have more of an insight to how people with this disease feel.
Wonder was a good book with lots of messages hidden inside. Dont judge a book by it's cover
