People have a hard time looking at August because his face is different from what most people are used to. "I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse." This year will be the first time August will go to school with other children; up until now August has been home schooled by his mom, but going into the 5th grade is the least of his worries. What will the other children say? Will they just stare? Will he make friends? Who will look past his face?
Written from August's perspective, as well as the perspective of the other people in his life, Wonder delivers a story that reminds you that there is courage in kindness. Grades 4 and up
