Wonder




Now a major movie from Lionsgate, starring Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay.
The unforgettable, life-affirming and internationally bestselling story of August Pullman - a boy who's desperate to blend in, but is destined to stand out.

My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

Astonishingly powerful, Wonder is a read you'll never forget.
