Review of Wonder - R.J. Palacio

August Pullman is an ordinary 5th grade boy with an extraordinary face - a face that scares little kids and causes others to stare and then quickly look away.  After being home schooled by his mom, he enters middle grade at a private school and slowly makes friends.  The author really captures the voices of 5th graders and others who become a part of Auggie's life.  This is a heartbreaking novel for all ages and it will bring a tear to your eye.  You can't help but root for this little boy as he faces more challenges than any person should ever have to bear.  Auggie is a wonder!  4 Elves -Highly Recommended
