New Release


R.J. Palacio

Wonder is a brutally powerful story of a 10-year-old boy named August Pullman, who has a facial anomaly. He is an ordinary kid who plays Xbox, is obsessed with Star Wars, but despite the 27 operations done for his face he will never look normal.

This book doesn’t use highfalutin vocabulary to be impressive but rather the way it depicts society is what makes it so heart-moving and imposing. It is the kind of book that can bring tears to your eyes within just the first few pages, or have you laughing and believing that despite all the brutality in the world there’s always reason to smile. It is the kind of book that will change the way you look at the world and make you realise that everyone is fighting their own demons and no one ought to make their lives more difficult by being unkind.
