My favorite book
The book that catches my heart
As an eighth-grader, I have read my fair share of books. However, there is one book that stands out from the rest. It is called “Wonder” written by R.J. Palacio.
The plot that moves me
The book is about a boy named August, who has a facial deformity that makes it hard for him to lead a normal life. He is homeschooled for most of his life, but eventually decides to attend a mainstream school. Throughout the book, we follow August’s journey of making friends, facing bullies, and ultimately finding his place in the world.
The characters that touch me
The characters in this book are so real and relatable. August is a brave and kind-hearted kid who is easy to root for. His parents’ love for him is heartwarming, and his sister, Via, provides a different perspective on what it’s like to have a sibling with a disability. The other kids at school, both good and bad, are all three-dimensional characters that feel like real people.
The message that inspires me
The biggest takeaway from this book is the importance of kindness. It shows how a little bit of kindness can go a long way in making someone’s day. The book also shows that everyone has something that makes them different, and that’s what makes us special. We should embrace our differences and celebrate them.
In conclusion, “Wonder” is a book that I would recommend to anyone, regardless of their age. It is a heartwarming story that will make you laugh, cry, and most importantly, think.
