I read Wonder over a year ago when I was reading all of the books for the 2013-2014 Bluebonnet Book list.  It was definitely one of the best books that I have read in a long time.  It tells the story of Auggie, a boy born with a severe facial deformity, and how he adjusts to attending a new school.  As you can imagine, he has to deal with many hardships but he is also pleasantly surprised by the good friends he makes at his new school.  Check out the book trailer here.  Here is the book's author, RJ Palacio, talking about what inspired her to write Wonder.
