Wonder

Wonder - R.J. Palacio A heartwarming story about a young boy with a defected face. As a someone with a brother who has a learning disability this story hits rather close to home. Kids are mean. People don't understand when they are being hurtful or some just don't care.

August Pullman deals with this daily just because he looks a certain way. Starting at a new middle school changes his life and the life of many others. Things start out rough for him. But through friendships and certain events things might turn around for him.

I enjoyed how the chapters went through each persons opinion in August's life. It would have been nice to hear from the parents, but they were probably left out since it is a children's story.

A quick read but a wonderful book to remember.
