My name is August.I won't describe to you what I look like.Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'Ten-year-old August Pullman wants to be ordinary. He does ordinary things. He eats ice-cream.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, he has been home-schooled by his parents his entire life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, Auggie's parents are sending him to a real school. Can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches, Wonder is a frank, funny, astonishingly moving debut to be read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.
