Now an Oscar nominated film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob
Tremblay. 'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever
you're thinking, it's probably worse.' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-
year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox.
He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary
kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at
wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been
home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's
being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be
accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them,
underneath it all? WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to
read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final

R. J. Palacio—Wonder
