This was our May pick for Book Club! I had started to read this book, then realized that I had already read it before! So, I decided to check out the movie to see how well it followed the story. I highly recommend reading the book first before watching the movie as some things are a little different, but both were really great!
Wonder is the story of a young boy named August Pullman or “Auggie” for short. He was born with a facial difference, keeping him from attending public school and his mom homeschooling him, until now. Auggie is about to enter the 5th grade at a public school. He just wants to be an ordinary kid! As his classmates and friends get past his differences, all the characters seem to grow in their own way, especially Auggie!
His story will bring tears to your eyes and in the end, triumph in your heart. A great book for kids and adults alike.
