Wonder by R.J. Palacio is about a kid with a facial deformity starting school for the first time. The story follows a young boy as he goes through the hills and valleys of being the student that stands out because of his face. I believe that there is a lot of symbolism to be taught to 6th graders with this book. There is so many opportunities for students to connect to the main character of the book. I know that this story will be one that I share with my future students. There are so many life lessons to be learned on every page of the book.
