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

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

4.5 Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Well, I didn't finish this book in time for my real life book meeting which is nothing new. I actually didn't even make the meeting due to exhaustion but I did finish the book because I couldn't not finish it once I began. 4 ½ Stars Wonder was pretty much exactly what I thought it might be and s...
