Wonder - R. J. Palacio

Born with a rare medical condition that completely distorts his face, August Pullman has spent most of his life as a homeschooler, shuttled to surgery after surgery, stared at by everybody he meets. Everything changes when August starts fifth grade at a real school. Suddenly, he is living like a regular kid, dealing with best friends and bullies, triumphs and tragedies. WONDER (Knopf, $15.99) tells the story of August’s fifth-grade year from multiple perspectives, including August’s new friends, his older sister, and August himself. R.J. Palacio’s remarkable debut explores what it’s like to be different, and what it’s like to finally fit in. Ages 9-12. DMC
