Wonder

By R.J. Palacio

Chloe already provided her review but I wanted to add my opinion.  Wonder is about a kid that has face disability. He is going to a real school for the first time. He is nervous and excited. The book about his experiences with other kids.

For a reader like me, this was a hard book. Not the topic, but changing “writer” was confusing. Some chapters were by Auggie, some by Via, some  by Summer and other characters have chapters too. It was hard for me to keep track of who was telling the story.  So teachers/librarians, please think about this if you have a kid having a hard time with this book.

I think it would have been easier if each author had their own lettering. Then I would have known for sure who was telling the story.

Review by Chloe of Chloe’s Friendship Circle

Wonder by RJ Palacio, is a great book.

It is about a 10 year old boy named August. His family and friends call him Auggie. He has facial deformities. In the book Auggie, his sister Via and al of his friends share their point of view about Auggie’s life and theirs. He goes to school for the first time and enters 5th grade. It isn’t easy for him at first.

He worries that people will think he’s scary and some people aren’t very nice. In the end (spoiler alert) he won the Beecher medal at his graduation. It’s the best one! Even though he was different he was able to inspire others. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good book to inspire people!
