My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? Astonishingly powerful, Wonder is a read you'll never forget.

Remarkable ... It has the power to move hearts and change minds Guardian Incredibly charming, brutal and brilliant Observer It wreaks emotional havoc ... To finish it with a firm resolve to be a better person - well, you can't ask much more of any book than that Independent When the kids have finished with this, the adults will want to read it. Everybody should Financial Times Awesome ... So authentic you'll swear a kid wrote the book. And yes, that's a good thing Glamour What a gem of a story. Moving and heart-warming. This book made me laugh, made me angry, made me cry -- Malorie Blackman I am terrifically jealous of everybody that gets to read Wonder for the first time. Every page is honest, brave and delightful -- Laura Dockrill It's one of those rare books with almost universal appeal: it will make you laugh, cry and break your heart The Bookseller The breakout publishing sensation ... Destined to go the way of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and then some. It is dark, funny, touching and no Tube carriage will be without a copy this year The Times A children's book that's making grown men cry Observer Thoughtful but never preachy. A great book -- Sophie Kinsella
