Wonderful from page one until the very Last!
August is Officially my favorite month. After reading this I can honestly say that this will be the easiest 315 pages you will ever read and you will love every page. I picked this up because one of my favorite authors had moved it up on her kindle and it inspired me to give it a go. Full disclosure I did watch the movie first this time around and don’t regret it shockingly. Wonder is about a boy August Pullman who is registered into the 5th grade at Beecher Prep. You would think that wouldn’t be an issue, wrong Auggie was born with a facial that makes life and friendships much harder. He was home schooled up until this point and the adventure of 5th grade is a scary one for August. Firstly, what I loved most is that it touches on real 5th grade behavior. August is faced with real genuine hardships and real friendships in the case of Jack and Summer, and real bullies in Henry and Julian. I loved how each chapter had its own voice and it gave the reader a real well-rounded understanding of who August is. I also enjoyed the family unit that he was given. It made me appreciate that I am very lucky to have a solid family unit. I think that after reading this you will either relive your grade school bullying or you will come out feeling kind and up lifting to those around you. If it is the first out come, I am sorry you had to experience that if it is the second then I suggest you pass this book on to someone who can use it. I am a big believer in paying it forward and everyone needs to feel the Wonder of this book.
