This is a great book to read. I think it should win the Newberry Medal. I like it because it’s about a kid named August who has a special feature and he is bullied. I don’t like the bullying parts but I do like the parts where he gets helped and people are nice to him. IT’S A MUST READ!!

Book Review: Wonder

September 12th, 2012 by

wonder-rj-palacio-book-reviewOkay, I’m just going to say it: Wonder by R.J. Palacio — it’s wonderful.

Couldn’t be helped. Had to say it. And not just because it’s a super cheesy thing to say and I’m a super cheesy person; I had to say it because it’s true!

Wonder is about Auggie, who has been home schooled all his life because of his deformed face and all the medical procedures he’s had to undergo. But now Auggie is headed to regular school for the first time — and that would be nerve-wracking enough for a regular kid; for Auggie, it equals total upheaval of his life.

But that description doesn’t do justice to the book and how totally, totally awesome it is. Because when you read Wonder, you won’t think of Auggie as an interesting character with an interesting story; you’ll think of him as a real kid, just like one of your friends, or even kind of like you.

Don’t believe me? Check out the amazing book trailer for Wonder, to hear from Auggie himself. I posted it a while back with a few other book trailers that I thought were pretty awesome, but you know what? The Wonder video is soooooooo good, I’m gonna post it again right here:

To find out what happens when Auggie gets to school, and to hear more from him, his sister, and the other kids at his school… obviously, you should read the book!

Karen cried several times while reading this book. They were all happy tears, but she still got asked, “Does the main character die?” Don’t worry, Auggie doesn’t die!
