Zitat
"What a gem of a story. Moving and heart-warming. This book made me laugh, made me angry, made me cry" -- Malorie Blackman "The breakout publishing sensation of 2012 will come courtesy of Palacio, a New York graphic designer whose debut novel, Wonder, is destined to go the way of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and then some. Telling the story of August, a schoolboy born with an unspecified facial deformity, it is dark, funny, touching and no Tube carriage will be without a copy this year" The Times "Incredibly charming, brutal and brilliant" -- Laura Dockrill Observer "It wreaks emotional havoc ... There is a message running through the book, most clearly voiced by an inspirational teacher, that if we were all a little kinder to one another the benefit would be incalculable. To finish it with a firm resolve to be a better person - well, you can't ask much more of any book than that" -- Suzi Feay Independent "When the kids have finished with this, the adults will want to read it. Everybody should" Financial Times

My name's August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August doesn't look like other boys in his age. Since he is a Baby he has a deformed face.

August doesn't look like other boys in his age. Since he is a Baby he has a deformed face. But althought this he is an ordinary boy. Now that he's ten years old his parents decide to let August go to a normal Middle School. But as kids are they don't treat Auggie like a normal boy. But he has good friends like Jack Will or Summer and together friends can do everything. This book is really beautiful. I cried so many times because I felt so sorry for Auggie but he is such a strong and Independent boy who goes through everything with a smile on his face. You have to read this book it's so funny sad and tells you a lot about family and friendship! You will not regret if you read it!

Ein Jahr mit Auggie

Das Buch handelt von einen gewöhnlichen Jungen, der nicht gewöhnlich aussieht. Nun soll er zum ersten mal eine Schule besuchen (5.Klasse).

Das Buch handelt von einen gewöhnlichen Jungen, der nicht gewöhnlich aussieht. Nun soll er zum ersten mal eine Schule besuchen (5.Klasse). Der Leser begleitet Auggie in diesem Jahr und erfährt auch Sichtweisen von anderen (Familie, Freunde). Das Buch ist ganz süß und die Botschaft ist schön. Dennoch finde ich es eher für jüngere Leser geeignet, da es manchmal ziemlich einfach gehalten wird und sich vieles um Themen dreht, was Kindern in der 5. Klasse so gefällt (u.a. Star Wars).
