Wonder, R.J. Palacio
August Pullman has a facial deformity that has meant that he has been home schooled. This is all about to change as his parents have enrolled him in a main stream school where he has to work hard to be accepted. This story is heart-warming as it is about a boy’s struggle to make true friends and to overcome the fact that he is different to his peers. It is a sad and happy story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
