About this item

Highlights

  • Debut novel from Palacio
  • Follow the story of Auggie, told by himself and others, as he's the new kid in school
  • Recommended for teens
Born with a facial anomaly that has required over two-dozen surgeries, 10-year-old Auggie Pullman is a pretty ordinary, Xbox-playing, ice cream-loving kid behind the face. When he gets to attend elementary school after a lifetime of home schooling, he's excited and scared. Even with the support of his close-knit, loving family, being the new kid is always rough, but with a face that often elicits both stares and shrieks, it's even harder. Auggie starts Beecher Prep and discovers who is a real friend and who isn't, and the challenges of community. With multiple narrators, observations of Auggie and his experience are diverse, adding nuance and depth to the story.
Auggie's ready to go to school, or at least he thinks he is in Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Auggie Pullman likes ice cream and Xbox, just like every other kid, but he doesn't look like everyone else. How will Auggie survive his first year at Beecher Prep? Will he find a group of friends he can really trust? The only way to find out is to read his story and marvel in wonder at how Auggie handles it all.
