Wonder by R J Palacio

9.55

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 page.

Great for Ages 9-12
