Review: Wonder

Wonder
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

August, or Auggie, is about to go to school for the first time, having been home-schooled until this point, and he’s terrified about what might happen. Auggie you see is different. He suffers from severe facial disfigurements which he cannot hide and others cannot help but react to when they meet him for the first time. Told in turn from his viewpoint and then those of his friends and family, this book explores the way we see each other and how that affects our relationships. Well-written, perceptive and pacey, this book deserves the plaudits it’s been getting. Definitely recommended.
