In Wonder by R. J. Palacio, August Pullman is not only beginning his first year of middle school, but his first year of any kind of public schooling (in the past he was home schooled). This is tricky for any child, but even tricker for August. He has a disfigured face which he can’t help. This book is about the events he goes through told by different characters that you meet along the way. Even though, it seem like it doesn’t have a happy ending, it does!
Even if the cover above doesn’t have it, the new book have a sticker that says ‘new chapter’. The book is so good, read it!
