“‘My name is August.
I won’t describe to you what I look like.
Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.’
Ten-year-old August Pullman wants to be ordinary. He does ordinary things. He eats ice-cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary – inside.
But Auggie is far from ordinary. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, he has been home-schooled by his parents his entire life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, Auggie’s parents are sending him to a real school. 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, Wonder is a frank, funny, astonishingly moving debut to be read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.”

Okay wow! I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did. This is a children’s book filled with so many lessons that adults need to learn. I didn’t expect this book to be written in different perspectives, but I think seeing August through different eyes makes it so much more beautiful.
August has such a beautiful mind and such a beautiful perspective of the world. Knowing what he goes through daily and the fact he still has such a kind heart is such an amazing thing. You don’t see it very often.
I gave this book a 5 out of 5 stars and I loved it so much. I recommend it to literally anyone because it’s just such a beautiful story and it teaches so many lessons. Please, read it.
Until Next Time,
