OK, I really love this book. Imagine a boy about 10 with his eyes down on her cheeks...
That's kinda Auggie. He had so many surgeries when he was a baby, he has a different looking face. Some people would say 'deformed'.
You might say, Ew, or OMG sounds so scary. BUT! This book is really touching. If your saying ew, imagine if YOU were him and everyone was talking about you behind your back, and scrunching up your nose whenever you were in view of people.
Relax and read. Go into the zone of the book Wonder.
Highly recommended for ages 9-13.
