REVIEW | Wonder – R.J. Palacio

“Here’s what I think: the only reason I’m not ordinary is that no one else sees me that way.”

It’s hard to talk about this book without spoiling it. But I loved reading this book – and I was right, I did cry by the end.

We mainly follow August, a boy who was born with a facial deformity who’s been living a pretty sheltered life. That changes as he goes to start school for the first time, and we follow from his eyes, and a few others, over the course of the year.

This tale will tug on your heartstrings, and show how prejudices are dumb and that talking really is key. There are some events where you see the story from both sides, and each side has very different ideas as to why things went the way they did. It is so so relatable, and each character has such a distinctive voice when their chapters come about.

I would really recommend this book.

    I ADORED this book when I read it! It’s one of the few books I kept from my early teens, and I’ve tried to get everyone to read it. Have you watched the movie?

    1. I haven’t! I didn’t realise there was a movie before people told me when I read it. Definitely on my radar! 😍

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
