Wonder by J.R. Palacio
Oh, my. I so loved this book.
What a heartwarming, sweet, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, often inspiring story.
Ten year old August Pullman was born with a severe facial deformity. Due to his many surgeries and constant health concerns, Auggie has always been home schooled. So when his mom thinks it's time for him to go to a public school, he is shocked and extremely nervous. How will the kids treat him? Will he make any friends? Will this be a disaster of decision?
The story is told from different perspectives and I really felt like I went on this emotional journey with Auggie and his friends and family.
What a gem of a book I will always treasure. "Shall we make a new rule of life...always try to be a little kinder than is necessary? "
