Wonder, by R.J. Palacio
Simply put, Wonder, by R. J. Palacio is a book about kindness. The main character, August, has never been to school before because of his severe facial deformities, and his many surgeries. He and his parents decide it's time for a real school in his New York City neighborhood, and so he goes, reluctantly, excitedly... Wonder is the story of August's first year at school and the bravery, kindness, humanity, compassion and friendship that comes out of this first year. I predict it will be the Summer read on every middle school reading list - it is a Wonderful story!
