Wonder – Reviewed by Jack, Age 11
Wonder by RJ Palacio is about a boy named August Pullman, who was born with a facial abnormality. Auggie had always been home-schooled, but his parents decide to send him to a real school to prepare for the real world. At first, he is terrified but when he starts he makes a few friends, and a few enemies…
At first, he sees some children staring at him when they think he isn’t looking, pointing and whispering to their friends, Auggie was used to it, but he wants to convince them that he’s a normal boy, not the boy with the weird face that everyone’s scared of, but the boy he is on the inside, the normal ten year old who plays xbox and eats ice cream like everyone else his age.
It’s one of my favourite books and I recommend it for children and adults.
