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.

This book is aimed at middle-graders. The protagonist, Auggie, a ten year-old boy, was born with a facial deformity which has a grave e...

Wonder is an incredible story that should be read in fifth grade. It is about a boy with a facial deformity that gets bullied, but it all stops when he makes some friends at a new school that stick up for him. This is a great story about acceptance and teaches lessons on bullying.
