The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that has captivated over 1 million readers and inspired a movement to choose kind.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 kidí¢ä‰åäó?but his new classmates caní¢ä‰å??t get past Auggieí¢ä‰å??s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggieí¢ä‰å??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 communityí¢ä‰å??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 í¢ä‰å?ña meditation on kindnessí¢ä‰?? í¢ä‰åäó?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 caní¢ä‰å??t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder
