Wonder, R.J. Palacio


by R. J. Palacio Year Published: 2012

This book is about August- or Auggie- Pullman who has some facial differences due to being born that way. He was homeschooled up until 5th grade, and his parents are thinking he needs to go to 'regular' school in for him to grow and mature as he should. The book tells of his journey into a new school, burgeoning friendships, and not to mention kindness, tolerance, and self-discoveries. 

I highly recommend this book to students, parents, and adults alike.
