Description

Soon to be a major film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay.

'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

    Love this book itโ€™s not normally my type of book but I saw you on bbc news one morning and I want to see the film so I thought I would download the book and Iโ€™m glad I did I havenโ€™t been able to put it down I have laughed at parts and cried at parts. My 7yr old son is even reading it which I think is great as it will teach him no matter how different people look it is always good to be kind and not make fun of people that look different. And that you can be friends with anyone.

    The author of this book has a very vivid imagination of what life would be like in August's shoes, it's amazing. I had a large variety of different emotions while reading this book, and I loved how it changed from different perspectives, I thought that was outstanding. I cried a lot in this book, so did my mum; Every night streams of tears would roll down our cheeks, especially at the end of the book where the bully (I forgot his name) goes to visit his grandma and she tells him such a heart-breaking story. It made me realise what some people go through and that buying clothes from Topshop and JD aren't the best things in life. BTW, I foung this book in the 'read it before you see it' section, is there a movie coming out of it?!

    Great book so emotional, the book is an easy read but a hooking story.it doesn't just show that it's the inside that is important not out but also shows that it doesn't matter about people's opinions you can still work your best just like August Pullman showed us. And I absolutely love it!
  • A book everyone should read...

    I absolutely adored this book. I was pulled into Augusts life, and completely fell in love with his personality and outlook on life. It's amazingly well written and beautifully crafted, a book for everyone.
