Book Review - Wonder
Wonder is a kid's book, which is why I hadn't read it yet, even though I've seen it all over the place. I finally picked it up and am so glad I did. It was a really sweet story. August is a 5th grader who has pretty severe facial deformity. Finally healthy enough to attend school after years of being home-schooled, this book follows him through 5th grade. Chapters are mostly from his perspective, but also his sister and some of his classmates. Palacio manages to tell a very heartwarming story without getting cheesy. I may have even teared up in a few places. I've always been a softy, but being a mom has made me even more sensitive when it comes to kids!
