Wonder By R. J Palacio: An Analysis

198 Words1 Page
If there was give an award for “Best Feel-Good Story,” Wonder by R.J. Palacio would win by a mile. A ten year-old boy with an abnormally shaped face has to learn how to deal with the world socially, with emotional twists and turns along the way. This fantastic novel transported me back to my fifth grade year, full of laughs (and surely a lot less homework). The overall message of the story was to choose kind, but it also had something much more meaningful hidden; do not take things for granted. August Pullman was born with “Mandibulofacial Dysostosis,” as it says in the book, and his fifth grade year is when he finally goes to an actual school. Auggie has to deal with bullies who make fun of him, but he also gets the opportunity to make friends.
