August Pullman was born with a facial difference that has kept him from going to mainstream school until now. Starting fifth grade at the Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated like just an ordinary kid, but his new classmates can’t get over the Auggie’s extraordinary face.
Taking Auggie’s point of view and expanding to include his classmates, sister, boyfriend and others, the perspectives converge to form a portrait of a community’s struggle for empathy, compassion and acceptance. In a world where bullying is an epidemic among young people, this is a refreshing new tale full of heart and hope.
R. J. Palacio called his first novel “a meditation on kindness”; In fact, all readers will appreciate more the simple value of friendship. Auggie is a hero to cheer on, a diamond in the rough who proves you can’t go unnoticed when you’re born to get noticed.

This book is one of the most moving and inspiring I have ever read. August Pullman’s adventure is very difficult as he is going through a difficult year to find his inner self with courage, confidence and compatibility. This book has heartfelt emotions so you can relate to the characters better, it’s hard to put down, and it has action so you won’t get bored while reading the book. In the end, we learn not to judge a book by its cover, which many kids did at Beecher Prep, the school Auggie attended.
Wonder, by R.J. Palace, takes place in the present. August was born with facial deformities, so he didn’t go to a regular school…until now. He is in fifth grade and is starting school at Beecher Prep. Being a new kid is already hard enough, but looking like Auggie is really unimaginable. Children are just not used to seeing faces like that. Unfortunately, August’s knowledge is underestimated just because he looks different. Inside he is a completely normal person. The book is about August struggling through fifth grade, taking friends (people who can look inside August without being bothered by his looks) along the way.
Auggie has a life of drama and excitement. He hears people talking about him behind his back all the time. “The tears were so strong in my eyes that I could barely see, but you know what I couldn’t wipe them away through the mask as I walked. He was looking for a small place where he could disappear. I wanted a hole to fall into: a little black hole that would swallow me.” (Page 78) Everyone at school was dressed up for Halloween and August had overheard his best friend Jack telling the bad kids about him spoke. This shows the emotional experiences Auggie is having.
Another time, you can really feel Auggie’s feelings when he’s having troubles with his family. “Stop lying to me mom!” I yelled. “Stop liking me treating a baby! I’m not retarded!’ I know what’s going on!’ I ran down the hall to my room and slammed the door so hard I heard little pieces of the wall collapsing into the door frame.”[…]” If I could walk with a pillow over my face the whole time “If I would do it, you would”. (Page 218) This shows that August has an understandable emotion in his life because he has family issues just like us.
This book is difficult to put down. At many points I struggle to bookmark the page and one part was when Auggie’s sister walked into his room with bad news. Auggie, Via said. ‘Come quickly. Mom needs to talk to you.” “[…]” “Come and say goodbye”. I pushed the pillows away from my face and looked at her. Then I saw that he was crying. ‘What do you mean, ‘Goodbye’?” the Page 220 was a very exciting part and it was the cliffhanger! You can see how hard it was for me to put my book down now.
This book is action packed so you won’t get bored while reading it. For example, August and his friends once run into some seventh graders who are up to no good. One of the seventh years bullied Auggie, and of course his friends stood up for him. That only leads to a big fight. “After that, things got really crazy.
Someone tugged at my sleeve and yelled, ‘Run!’ and for a few seconds I had two people pulling the sleeves of my sweatshirt in opposite directions. I heard them both swear […] We ran like crazy, and every time I started to slow down, the guy pulling my arm yelled, ‘Don’t stop!'” The Page 267 This part was very thrilling and exciting that I almost couldn’t handle it!
Throughout the book, August constantly makes friends and sees the best in people. We learn not to judge a book by its cover, and in the circumstances, the “book” is Auggie. We also learned that no matter what the obstacles, you should do something you enjoy. I highly recommend Wonder.
