I read “Wonder" on my flight to Orlando last week and really enjoyed it. I decided to read along with the @deliciousreads book club this month. . Wonder: 5/5 Stars . “Wonder" is about ten year old August who is born with a series of health and physical problems. But none of these problems are with his comprehension. In short, he’s a regular ten-year-old kid on the inside, but not so regular when it comes to the way he looks. But I won’t tell you how he looks, I’ll let you read about that yourself. . “Wonder” is told from various points of view. Each chapter features August, one of his friends, or his sister, and how they deal with August’s entry into public school for the first time. For August, it’s daring to go into a public setting and dealing with the way people treat him because of how he looks. For his sister or his peers, it’s daring to be friends with someone so different. . This book was effortless to read. You kind of just get swept up into the story and August, and before you know it, this sad and sweet story is over. There were a lot of great messages and good character growth in this book, but most of all, I found it extremely thought-provoking. Why do I treat people the way I do? . It reminded me of all the times that I did something mean in middle school or high school. It made me glad for all the times that I chose kindness over cruelty. I think it’s natural to be caught off guard by things that interrupt what is “normal” or “mainstream” in our individual worlds, but it’s the way we recover from the moment and the way we proceed afterwards that shows what kind of person we are. There are a lot of messages in this book, but I think one of the main ones is: When you have a choice, choose kindness. .
