Ever since John Schu (@MrSchuReads) and Colby Sharp (@colbysharp) of the Nerdy Book Club started raving about R.J. Palacio’s Wonder I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy and find out what made this book so amazing. The wait was definitely worth it and I’m loving this wonderful story.
If you haven’t heard about it, here’s the blurb:
WONDER is the funny, sweet and incredibly moving story of Auggie Pullman. Born with a terrible facial deformity, this shy, bright ten-year-old has been home-schooled by his parents for his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the stares and cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, Auggie is being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. The thing is, Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all? Through the voices of Auggie, his big sister Via, and his new friends Jack and Summer, WONDER follows Auggie’s journey through his first year at Beecher Prep.
