Wonder is about a little boy named August, his nickname is Auggie, and he has a deformed face. He has many life challenges and he overcomes them. He goes to school for the first time when he is ten years old. He gets made fun of a lot. I think the main message is that it doesn't matter what is on the outside of you but on the inside.
The setting is in North River Heights in New York City. It is in the present time.
One main character is Jack Will. He is a friend to August, and he is one of the few people who accept him. He is an enemy to the bully of the grade, Julian. At one time, he says some mean stuff about August. He didn't really mean what he said. They became friends again. In the end, Jack, August, and a girl name Summer, made everyone like August even if he is deformed.
I would recommend this book so you can learn to accept people how they are. It is also very interesting and it is very long and adventurous.
