Wonder

(4)
NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face.

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

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

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. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, 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 is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" -indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

Portrait
R. J. PALACIO lives in NYC with her husband, two sons, and two dogs. For more than twenty years, she was an art director and graphic designer, designing book jackets for other people while waiting for the perfect time in her life to start writing her own novel. But one day several years ago, a chance encounter with an extraordinary child in front of an ice cream store made R. J. realize that the perfect time to write that novel had finally come. Wonder is her first novel. She did not design the cover, but she sure does love it.

August doesn't look like other boys in his age. Since he is a Baby he has a deformed face. But althought this he is an ordinary boy. Now that he's ten years old his parents decide to let August go to a normal Middle School. But as kids are they don't treat Auggie like a normal boy. But he has good friends like Jack Will or Summer and together friends can do everything. This book is really beautiful. I cried so many times because I felt so sorry for Auggie but he is such a strong and Independent boy who goes through everything with a smile on his face. You have to read this book it's so funny sad and tells you a lot about family and friendship! You will not regret if you read it!

Das Buch handelt von einen gewöhnlichen Jungen, der nicht gewöhnlich aussieht. Nun soll er zum ersten mal eine Schule besuchen (5.Klasse).

Das Buch handelt von einen gewöhnlichen Jungen, der nicht gewöhnlich aussieht. Nun soll er zum ersten mal eine Schule besuchen (5.Klasse). Der Leser begleitet Auggie in diesem Jahr und erfährt auch Sichtweisen von anderen (Familie, Freunde). Das Buch ist ganz süß und die Botschaft ist schön. Dennoch finde ich es eher für jüngere Leser geeignet, da es manchmal ziemlich einfach gehalten wird und sich vieles um Themen dreht, was Kindern in der 5. Klasse so gefällt (u.a. Star Wars).
