This is a really entertaining and interesting story that makes you think about human nature. It is a funny and meaningful story about friendship. _Wonder_ made me think a lot about how we ALL judge people based on how they look. It's interesting that since we never see Auggie, we have the chance to get to know him without judging him on his looks. All the other characters in the book don't get to meet him that way.
