Wonder

Wonder - R.J. Palacio To say I could not put this book down would be an understatement! August or Auggie as many call him, is a true portrait of courage and shows how enduring the human spirit is. Auggie shows those around him that just because his facil features do not fit the definition of normal does not make someone who is stupid or without feelings. This book should be required reading for all middle schoolers, it really addresss so many issues that are not talked about enough.
