#1 New York Times bestseller
USA Today bestseller
Time Magazine's 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time
New York Times Book Review Notable Book
Washington Post Best Kids' Book


A School Library Journal Best of Children's Books

A Booklist Best of Children's Books 


Slate:
"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year."

Entertainment Weekly: 
"In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner filled with characters you can't help but root for."

The New York Times:
"Rich and memorable...It's Auggie and the rest of the children who are the real heart of 'Wonder,' and Palacio captures the voices of girls and boys, fifth graders and teenagers, with equal skill."

The Wall Street Journal:
"What makes R.J. Palacio's debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon generosity with which she tells Auggie's story…The result is a beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”

The Huffington Post: 
"It's in the bigger themes that Palacio's writing shines. This book is a glorious exploration of the nature of friendship, tenacity, fear, and most importantly, kindness."

"Full of heart, full of truth, Wonder is a book about seeing the beauty that's all around us.  I dare you not to fall in love with Auggie Pullman."
- Rebecca Stead, Newbery award-winning author of When You Reach Me

"It is the deceptive simplicity and honesty of the work that make Wonder so memorable. Every single character seems real and well drawn and oh-so human...This book is beautiful." - Christopher Paul Curtis, Newbery award-winning author of Bud, Not Buddy

"A beautiful story of kindness and courage. There are many real and well-developed characters, and they each have their shining moments. Of course, Auggie shines the brightest." - Clare Vanderpool, Newbery award-winning author of Moon Over Manifest

"Wonder is a beautifully told story about heartache, love, and the value of human life. One comes away from it wanting to be a better person." - Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery honor-winning author of Lily's Crossing and Pictures of Hollis Woods

"Wonder is a shining jewel of a story that cannot help but encourage readers of all ages to do better, to be better, in how they treat others in life. I'm totally in love with this novel."  - Trudy Ludwig, anti-bullying advocate and author of My Secret Bully, Confessions of a Former Bully, Better Than You, and Just Kidding

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly:
“Few first novels pack more of a punch: it's a rare story with the power to open eyes--and hearts--to what it's like to be singled out for a difference you can't control, when all you want is to be just another face in the crowd.”

Starred Review, Booklist:
“Palacio makes it feel not only effortless but downright graceful, and by the stand-up-and-cheer conclusion, readers will be doing just that, and feeling as if they are part of this troubled but ultimately warm-hearted community.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal:
"Palacio has an exceptional knack for writing realistic conversation and describing the thoughts and emotions of the characters...A well-written, thought-provoking book."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:
“A memorable story of kindness, courage and wonder.”

From School Library Journal

August, nicknamed Auggie, is a 10-year-old with a facial deformity that causes others to avoid and even shun him. When he enters a mainstream school, Auggie must learn to cope with difficult new situations and new people. The narrative is told from the perspectives of Auggie, his new friends, his sister, and her boyfriend. Steele's Auggie is raspy, quick, and delivered in a conversational tone, while Rudd and Podehl give a full range of vocal performances that bring the remaining characters to full light. α(c) Copyright 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Emotional, Amazing Book is One for All Ages to Read! Trust Me, You Want to Read It!
By Kristin B. on March 9, 2018
"'If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary - the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.'"

I love to read and am always on the lookout for new books to read. I had seen this one awhile ago but decided not to read it at the time because I have so many books I want to read. My twins' school is reading this collectively and I wanted to read it along with them so I decided to purchase my own copy so I would know what they were talking about and could help explain the book. I ended up reading ahead and just finished it. It was so good and I wish I had read it sooner, it was that good!

August Pullman is truly an ordinary kid in every way you would think of a ten-year-old boy, except for one thing. He was born with a deformed face and, despite many surgeries, he doesn't quite look "normal." His mom has homeschooled him so that he doesn't have to be out in the world. Now it's time for Auggie to enter fifth grade and his mom is really pushing for him to go to public school. Middle school is hard enough for any kid and Auggie and all of the students, faculty, and staff at Beecher Prep will learn about the power of kindness and how it can really affect us.

I started reading this book at the same time that I'm also reading it out loud to my five-year-old twins and I couldn't resist reading ahead! The story is engaging, descriptive, emotional at times, and truly heartwarming. I teared up at several parts, both happy and sad. Wonder is told from several characters' viewpoints so it's great to get a broader view of what's going on during the story than just from one character.

I would give this book ten stars if I could! I really felt like I was right there with the rest of the kids at Beecher Prep since the writing was so good and engaging. I feel kids and adults of all ages would love to read this book because it is a good reminder that it is important to always be kind to everyone. You just never know how much that kindness will mean to another person!

"I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse."
🌻
Wonder by R.J. Palacio is a story of a ten-year-old boy named August Pullman. He had multiple surgeries to correct his facial deformity so he was homeschooled. However, his parents decide to send him to a school before he starts studying for fifth grade. The book covers his experiences and struggles in his new school.
🌻
The narrative hit me hard from the very first line. I really liked the spirit of August, who kept a positive attitude even in the midst of hopeless and traumatising situations. I also liked the fact that the author has given multiple point of views in this book. Although the book is written for young readers, I feel that it has a universal appeal. I laughed and I cried while reading this book. There are wonderful lessons about friendship and kindness which everyone should remember and apply in their life.
🌻
Wonder is a wonderful book which will touch the heart and soul of the readers. I loved this book to the core.
