A Booklist Best of Children's Books
"Wonder is essentially ... a wonder. It's well-written, engaging, and so much fun to read that the pages almost turn themselves. More than that, Wonder touches the heart in the most life-affirming, unexpected ways, delivering in August Pullman a character whom readers will remember forever. Do yourself a favor and read this book – your life will be better for it." - Nicholas Sparks, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year."
"In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner filled with characters you can't help but root for."
The New York Times:
"Rich and memorable...It's Auggie and the rest of the children who are the real heart of 'Wonder,' and Palacio captures the voices of girls and boys, fifth graders and teenagers, with equal skill."
The Wall Street Journal:
"What makes R.J. Palacio's debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon generosity with which she tells Auggie's story…The result is a beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”
The Huffington Post:
"It's in the bigger themes that Palacio's writing shines. This book is a glorious exploration of the nature of friendship, tenacity, fear, and most importantly, kindness."
"Full of heart, full of truth, Wonder is a book about seeing the beauty that's all around us. I dare you not to fall in love with Auggie Pullman."
- Rebecca Stead, Newbery award-winning author of When You Reach Me
"It is the deceptive simplicity and honesty of the work that make Wonder so memorable. Every single character seems real and well drawn and oh-so human...This book is beautiful." - Christopher Paul Curtis, Newbery award-winning author of Bud, Not Buddy
"A beautiful story of kindness and courage. There are many real and well-developed characters, and they each have their shining moments. Of course, Auggie shines the brightest." - Clare Vanderpool, Newbery award-winning author of Moon Over Manifest
"Wonder is a beautifully told story about heartache, love, and the value of human life. One comes away from it wanting to be a better person." - Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery honor-winning author of Lily's Crossing and Pictures of Hollis Woods
"Wonder is a shining jewel of a story that cannot help but encourage readers of all ages to do better, to be better, in how they treat others in life. I'm totally in love with this novel." - Trudy Ludwig, anti-bullying advocate and author of My Secret Bully, Confessions of a Former Bully, Better Than You, and Just Kidding
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly:
“Few first novels pack more of a punch: it's a rare story with the power to open eyes--and hearts--to what it's like to be singled out for a difference you can't control, when all you want is to be just another face in the crowd.”
Starred Review, Booklist:
“Palacio makes it feel not only effortless but downright graceful, and by the stand-up-and-cheer conclusion, readers will be doing just that, and feeling as if they are part of this troubled but ultimately warm-hearted community.”
Starred Review, School Library Journal:
"Palacio has an exceptional knack for writing realistic conversation and describing the thoughts and emotions of the characters...A well-written, thought-provoking book."
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:
“A memorable story of kindness, courage and wonder.”
The story of ten-year-old August Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, and the way he changes the lives and the perspectives of everyone around him. The most poignant, moving and heartwarming tale you will read this year; a book to devour in one sitting and press urgently into the hands of your friends and family. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: MP3 CD.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

When I read it, I felt with auggie all the time, because I can imagine how hard it must be to live with a deformed face and being watched with disgust all time. I think the story is build up very strong and good, because there always is a tension or something exiting, which makes you read on.
Another point that makes this book so good are the educational aspects it transports.Young children could be convinced and could come to the result that bullying is pretty bad. In addition it could be that bullied children learn how to cope with their problem .
So altogether Wonder is a book with a great story and an educational aspect.
I read this book with no proper knowledge what to expect. I think that's the reason why I enjoyed this book so much. There was barley any info, so you have no choice other than to let yourself be surprised what story Palacio wants to tell.
The minute Auggie came into the picture and described how his every day life looked like, I was smitten. Sad, of course but eager to know more. And I got more. I got an insight into Auggies life, how he struggles and survives. How everyone around him reacts or handles what happened to him. Different point of views offered different kind of opinions.
And I was surprised how relatable they all were. My sister used to have a friend in primary school who had similar issues. She was a wonder, too. And I remember how insecure she was around us and how insecure I was. It was hard but once you saw through that "wonder" (I don't want to give any spoilers away so I just use this word) and really get to know this person there isn't really much to be insecure about. Every human looks different. Some more some less. That doesn't make them any less human. At the end of the day it doesn't matter how one looks. Because looks won't bond people. Looks can be deceiving. The way someone looks is like holding a colourful box. What really matters is the content in this box. And don't we all want to see, what's inside this box?
“Wonder” is a perfect example for a book that is hyped for the subject matter that it tackles (a boy who suffers from TCS) and that lets people overlook its formal shortcomings. Don’t get me wrong – the subject matter is very important, and for the subject matter, I’m glad that I read the book! And it is true that Palacio treats the subject matter in a very emphatic way. She also makes sure in every chapter that it is clear how the reader should exactly feel – and this is where the great fault of this book lies. It is TOO DIDACTIC. I never really had the feeling that I was reading about the lives of the characters; I had the feeling that the characters exist to bring the ‘message’ across to the reader. One main reason for this is that Palacio can’t write a convincing dialogue - the characters sound much older as they are supposed to be (and this is not due to their special circumstances!). As reader, you just notice that, and it accounts for the fact that the book never really “draws you in” (or at least, never drew me in).
This only gets better near the ending of the book, where Auggie goes on a school trip. Here, where Palacio is less didactic, the book actually gets exciting, and the events that happen on this school trip are also the ones that stuck the most in my memory. The reason for this is that I actually thought about what happened and about how the characters felt in these scenes, because nobody spelled it out for me. This is a much more effective way to make a reader think about the content of a book! If Palacio had shaped the text similarly in the rest of the book and had fleshed out the characters more, “Wonder” would have been better.
Nevertheless, I can still recommend the book, because as I said, I’m glad that I read it for its subject matter! It just fell short of my expectations, especially in comparison with other books.
As the book is so didactic, it can also be effectively discussed in English lessons at school.
