When Augustís mother says that he is finally going to a new school, August was scared but a little excited. But on the first day of school people said, ďWhatís up, Ewww, and Pssst!Ē This is because he had a surgery as a baby that caused his face to look damaged. So, August was having a hard time till he met Summer. Then, he also met Jack Will who was friends with the other kids and soon people forgot all about the mean comments. But on a campout a boy named Eddie took one of Augustís hearing aids. His new friends helped him out!
In addition, I liked this book because of Augustís troubles. I am glad to hear that August got picked on because I was small too. But just like August, I was fine. My favorite part was when Augustís friends stood up for him against Eddie. Just like Augustís friends, mine would probably do the same. I would do it too because I would feel bad for August. While I read the book I felt bad for August when people called him ugly and other mean things like that. Everybody should treat each other with respect.
To end, I think that Wonder was a great book because of the lesson that was learned. Always treat each other with respect. I recommend this for kids in third grade and up. Wonder was fantastic. So check it out today!
