Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Auggie Pullman was homeschooled his whole life, but the summer before fifth grade, his parents drop a bombshell: from now on, he’s going to be attending Beecher Prep — a real school filled with real students. That would be scary news for any kid, but it’s especially terrifying for Auggie, who has what doctors call “cranio-facial anomalies.” Also available in audio and digital formats.
