Wonder, R.J. Palacio
I think wonder was an inspiring story with a great message. It taught me to never judge a book by its cover because someone might look a certain way but be different on the inside. I think August was a strong and inspiring character. I think the story shows us what the true power of kindness can do and how a little kindness can make a big difference. I would rate the book a 10/10 and I’m definitely going to read the second one!
