About Wonder by R. J. Palacio:
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school.
Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face.
The story begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
Wonder, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, is the book that inspired the ‘Choose Kind’ movement.
