Book Discussion Guide: Wonder by R. J. Palacio (Digital Download)
10-year-old August Pullman (Auggie) was homeschooled until 4th grade because of his severe health problems. Auggie is terrified to go to regular school because of what the other kids might think of him, but he ends up with a few friends, despite his reservations. When Auggie’s friends talk behind his back and ditch him, it is up to Auggie’s sister Olivia to get him to stay in school until the end of the year. Told from the many perspectives of the different characters rather than a single narrator, Wonder is a heartwarming tale of friendship, overcoming bullies, and standing up for others.
