Wonder by R.J. Palacio is the first book I have read in one sitting in while. Now, this book is aimed for teens and young adults. But, this book was a true page turner from beginning to end. Following the life of a young boy with a rare facial deformity as he finds his way in life.

Auggie knows that he is different from everyone else around him. When he goes out in public, to school, or anywhere people look and stare at him. Constantly mocked he finds himself attending a new school. Scared to be around kids his own age he finds himself becoming more comfortable with school as he makes new friends. Even though he has friends he is still mocked, never the less, he is able to find his through life with new friends and a supportive family.
