Wonder

by R.J. Palacio
£7.99   paperback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (Black Swan) (2013)

Wonder by R.J. Palacio '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.
