Wonder Book Summary


Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

  • WOW is all I can say. (Xanup)

    I have no clue how it did it but this book/movie literally explained my family's life. While I didn't go through the same thing Auggie did, I have 2 genetic disorders that have made life feel comparably difficult. Writing from the perspective of different family members and friends made me get a glimpse of what may be going through their mind during times of difficulty. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the perspectives of different people during medical crisises.
  • Amazing (Jade Pohlhammer)

    When I read the first page I was instantly hooked, I was surveying girls around my school and see what they would rate and a lot of them said it was a 10/10 and I thought I’d get this book. They said they cried through it and I now see why after reading the first chapter, I just think it’s sad how someone was born with deformities and yet have a great life. I want to say this book is so amazing and hope they make a “wonder the sequel”.
