August Pullman, o Auggie, nasceu com uma síndrome cuja sequela é uma severa deformidade facial, que lhe impôs diversas cirurgias e complicações médicas. Por isso ele nunca frequentou uma escola de verdade.. até agora. Todo mundo sabe que é difícil ser um aluno novo, mais ainda quando se tem um rosto tão diferente. Prestes a começar o quinto ano em um colégio particular em Nova York, Auggie tem uma missão nada fácil pela frente: convencer os colegas de que, apenas da aparência incomum, ele é um menino igual a todos os outros. R.J.Palacio criou uma história edificante, repleta de amor e esperança, em que um grupo de pessoas luta para espalhar compaixão, aceitação e gentileza. Narrado da perspectiva de Auggie e também de seus familiares e amigos, com momentos comoventes e outros descontraídos, Extraordinário consegue captar o impacto que um menino pode causar na vida e no comportamento de todos, família, amigos e comunidade – um impacto forte, comovente e , sem dúvida nenhuma, extraordinariamente positivo, que vai tocar todo tipo de leitor. Para espalhar a mensagem de Extraordinário, Palacio iniciou uma campanha antibullying no site www.choosekind.tumblr.com, da qual milhares de crianças já participaram.

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.
