Wonder by R.J. Palacio is about a kid named August Pullman who has to try and navigate school for the first time. He hasn’t gone to school ever because August has a rare disease called treacher collins syndrome, so he looks a little different than other kids. August did want to go to school because he didn’t look like all of the other kids. Later on in the book his parents convince him to try and go to school and he does. Even though August had some hard times throughout the year he still made it.
