Excellent read for all ages! The story starts off in the perspective of Auggie, but I was really drawn in when it switched to other characters in the book. The author does a great job giving life to the grey area in between right and wrong, where so many social lessons are learned as a child!

This is a terrific book. Auggie Pullman, born with several birth defects that caused him to have a facial deformity, moves from home-schooling to middle school. He has an interesting year at school, making friends and breaking down barriers and prejudices due to his outstanding character. A very moving book that teaches the importance personality vs. looks, a valuable lesson for kids and adults of any age.

Our family just completed Wonder on audio. Absolutely amazing story about being kind, compassionate to those who are different. Captivated and changed by this beautiful story. A must read for children and adult alike.
