This is a fantastic read. It’s one of those books that changes you. I like that Palacio gives us the story through Auggie- Auggie (And Via at certain points) tells us the story from his 10-year-old perspective. Auggie’s story is unique, but at the same time it’s a story that we can all relate to. Auggie struggles with physical challenges that most of us don’t, but I don’t think the book is supposed to be about the physical challenges. It’s really about the emotional battles he faces that we all encounter. What’s more, it’s a book that reminds us that others are going through silent challenges too. Wonder is a story that forces us to reconsider how we are treating those that are in our lives. Auggie is physically deformed because of birth and development complications, but he is a strong individual that speaks to us about the unfairness, bullying, betrayal, happiness, and love that we all go through.
