5.0 out of 5 stars Wonder, 14 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Wonder (Paperback)
Wonder by R J Palacio is an amazing book to say the least. I read it last year as it was on the short list for the Carnegie Children's book award.I had to read it as part of book group at my school. It wasn't the sort of book I would have picked myself, at first glance I thought it would be a depressing book. But wonder is one of my favourite books.
The main character is a boy called August. His face is deformed. He sees himself as a normal boy, but other people don't. He hasn't been to school, his mum homeschooled him. He lives with his parents and sister Via. This is based on when August starts school for the very first time.
One thing I love about this book is that is written in other peoples perspectives. It is very interesting because you can see what other people think.. Including
August
His parts are the biggest and express his fears and concerns and they are very emotional because things don't work easily for him. He is scared about school. He finds it hard to make friends and acts like nothing is wrong in front of his parents.
Via
Via is Augusts sister. I love her parts as you can tell how people have always fussed over her brother and when she starts Secondary(or high) school, she changes her name from Olivia to Via and doesn't want to be picked on for her brothers looks.

I have reread this book so much I just love it so much.
Even though I love it, this book isn't for everyone.
If you like quite deep emotional books then this book is for you. If you like The Fault in Our Stars, you might like this, but bear in mind that the two books are very different in terms of the deepness.

I also recommend The bunker diary and Lucas, both by Kevin Brookes.

My opinion...
I gave this five stars. It is an extremely emotional and touching book that you will want to read again and again. The different perspectives give the book the finishing touch. READ IT AND U WONT REGRET IT I PROMISE!!!!!!!!
