August Pullman is an ordinary kid. The only problem is he does not have an ordinary face. Since he was born he had severe facial abnormalities and had been treated differently to normal kids. He has been subjected to numerous surgeries and has been home-schooled to avoid the cruelty of others. August has remained sheltered by his parents until they decide to make him do the hardest thing someone like him could do. Attend middle school. Even though his father says it will be “Like a lamb to the slaughter”, August finds friends in the unlikeliest of places. This book is amazingly written and is narrated by different characters with certain links to August. This book is solely about belonging and unfair judgment. I strongly recommend Wonder for children between the ages of 10-12.
