Wonder by R.J. Palacio
August Pullman, 10, was born with a severe facial deformity. He’s been homeschooled all his life. Now, in fifth grade, his parents want him to go to school. Written from many different perspectives—Auggie’s own, his new friends’, his sister’s, and his sister’s boyfriend’s—Wonder brings new meaning to compassion and empathy.
