Audio Book Summary

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school-until now. He's about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power. "Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart- it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!" - Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories

    Love this book!!!! Empathy for the underdog! The narration of the main character is terrible! Almost unbearable to listen to. The other characters are really good!!!

    Our kids (6 and 9) were so into this book that as soon as we got into the car they demanded we listen to the book. They loved the voices of each character and we listened to it as a family. Very educational book - lots of serious social topics for us to discuss together.
