Book # 24 Read in 2013
Wonder by R.J. Palacio (YA)
August (Auggie) was born with a facial deformity. Up until now (the 5th grade) he has been home schooled. He decides to try 5th grade in a regular school. He expects to be treated oddly by some but while that is true, Auggie is also pleasantly surprised by others. Auggie strives to come into his own during this first year of school.
I loved this book. Auggie was a wonderful character. He was brave, funny and genuine. There was a wonderful cast of characters in this book--Auggie's parents and sister, Jack Will, Summer and the middle school principal. I recommend this book.
