Watch R.J Palacio introduce her moving and original new book, Wonder.
I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?
Wonder will be published in the UK on the 1st March 2012 by Random House Children's Books & 7th June 2012 by Transworld.
