Wonder by RJ Palacio
This year our class will be reading and discussing the book, Wonder. I can not say enough good things about this book! I absolutely LOVE it! It would be great if each student had their own copy of this book. It is available at Costco, Amazon and Scholastic.
The publisher's description:
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?
