Wonder

Day 2 of Summer break and one book checked off my Someday list.  This only happened so fast because my son is still in school so I have had yesterday and today all to myself. 

I have been meaning to read this book for years, but it never happened until yesterday.  What an amazing book!  A boy, who looks different from other people, begins middle school and has to deal with the struggles every 10-11 year old has to deal with plus more.  The story is written from multiple points of view, but never flipping around too much to make it difficult to understand.  It addresses the themes of empathy, friendship, bravery, and courage in a realistic and heartfelt story.  A wonderful read for all ages. 

My favorite line/idea was from the main character, August.

“Everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their life.”
