August Pullman was born with a facial deformity that‚ up until now‚ prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep‚ he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid — but his classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie’s point of view‚ but soon many perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy‚ compassion‚ and acceptance.
