Wonder by J.R.Palacio

Fernando Beltrán recommended me the book titled ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio.

‘Wonder’ is about a young boy, August Pullman, who has a congenital facial abnormality. After being homeschooled, he enters school for the first time in fifth grade and has to cope with a range of reactions to his unusual appearance, as well as a lot of typical middle school drama. Some kids use hateful language, and some people suggest that Auggie is mentally deficient. These situations are upsetting, as are other hardships that Auggie's family endures, including loss of a beloved family pet. However, goodness wins out, and readers should find it inspiring and uplifting.

Here you have the webpage where you can even find questions to discuss in your classroom maybe with students at secondary school.

If you are not yet decided to read it, have a look inside the book in this link :
