From the Publisher
Editors Note I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. 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, despite appearances?R. J. Palacio has written a spare, warm, uplifting story that will have readers laughing one minute and wiping away tears the next. With wonderfully realistic family interactions (flawed, but loving), lively school scenes, and short chapters, Wonder is accessible to readers of all levels.
Annotation Born with a facial anomaly that has required over two-dozen surgeries, 10-year-old Auggie Pullman is a pretty ordinary, Xbox-playing, ice cream-loving kid behind the face. When he gets to attend elementary school after a lifetime of home schooling, he's excited and scared. Even with the support of his close-knit, loving family, being the new kid is always rough, but with a face that often elicits both stares and shrieks, it's even harder. Auggie starts Beecher Prep and discovers who is a real friend and who isn't, and the challenges of community. With multiple narrators, observations of Auggie and his experience are diverse, adding nuance and depth to the story.
