Wonder is the first book since The Notebook to make me cry to sleep. So sad, emotional and powerful, this is a book everyone needs to be aware of. August is a young boy that has a health condition, which is why his face looks different than other people’s faces. But he is just as normal and ordinary as any other kid. When his parents decide it is time for him to go to school instead of being home-schooled, he is afraid. Because children are honest, and sometimes unintentionally mean, “When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” Wonder by R.J. Palacio is just a book that is here to remind us to be kind and to be humble. A book I highly recommend to everyone. I also recommend the movie as well, but only after you have read the book.

Wonder is the first book since The Notebook to make me cry to sleep. So sad, emotional and powerful, this is a book everyone needs to be aware of.

August is a young boy that has a health condition, which is why his face looks different than other people’s faces. But he is just as normal and ordinary as any other kid.

When his parents decide it is time for him to go to school instead of being home-schooled, he is afraid. Because children are honest, and sometimes unintentionally mean,

“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”

During this book, we see August’s point of view, his daily life and making friends with Jack and Summer.
