This incredible story is about a nine year old boy who attends public school. When Michael was three years old he was diagnosed with autism. Michael was smart, but he didn't learn as quickly as other children his age. In fact, one of Michael's previous teachers thought that he should go to a different classroom, a place for kids with different learning abilities. During recess, Michael would play by himself because he didn't know how to interact with others. By the end of third grade, he met a kid named Larry. Larry was into sports and loved to play Larry thought Michael was "weird" because he would cover his ears and play by himself. Michael's "uniqueness" often times, made it difficult to make friends. Larry, on the other hand, was sociable. These two boys learned so much from each other. Michael's disorder did not interrupt the boys bonding time, it only complimented the start of a new friendship.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
