Today’s blogging challenge is Hosted by Kassie from Miss Sassy Kassie. Kassie is also one of the Booktube hosts for the Biannual Bibliothon!
For today’s challenge, I decided to write a review for the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
TW for bullying
While August’s story is told from perspectives other than his they are clearly defined and work really well for this book. Wonder is a beautifully written heartwarming/heartbreaking story about a boy named August who starts fifth grade at a private school after being home schooled the majority of his life. August is bullied, has a somewhat hard time fitting in at first, makes friends, and shows people that it isn’t about what’s on the outside, it’s about what’s on the inside that counts. Your looks don’t define you. I highly recommend this book if you want a story about family, friendship, and kindness.
