"I'm not going to describe my appearance. It's probably worse than what you're thinking."
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that has kept him from attending a mainstream school until now. He wants nothing more than to be treated l... ike an ordinary kid when he starts fifth grade at Beecher Prep, but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Texas Bluebonnet Award, begins with Auggie's perspective but quickly shifts to include his classmates, sister, boyfriend, and others. These viewpoints come together to paint a picture of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you.
It's like people you see sometimes, and you can't imagine what it would be like to be that person, whether it's somebody in a wheelchair or somebody who can't talk. Only, I know that I'm that person to other people, maybe to every single person in that whole auditorium. To me, though, I'm just me. An ordinary kid.
