Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Received for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their life because we all overcometh the world. – Auggie’

I really loved reading this book, the characters are absolutely fantastic and I really enjoyed reading the progress that everyone made throughout; I found it really interesting reading from so many different perspectives, especially Via, Jack and Miranda. One of the great strengths of Wonder is that it is realistic and shows the way August’s condition has had an impact on everyone who knows and loves him, in vastly different ways.

I think it’s so brilliant that this book has been written and enjoyed by so many people, as it really emphasizes that looks are not important and a person should not be judged by them; what’s inside really is what counts and everyone needs to realise that.
