Guys if you havent already seen it you need to get yourselves down to the cinema to watch the amazing new film of the year Wonder! And if you havent read the book then heres a little background!
August or “Auggie” Pullman, a ten-year-old boy living in New York City, was born with a facial deformity that has made it difficult for him to make friends. He lives with his parents, his older sister Via, and his dog Daisy. He has been homeschooled up until the fifth grade, but his parents have decided that it is time for him to go to a real school. They enroll him in Beecher Prep, a neighbourhood private school, and take him to meet the principal, Mr. Tushman. While August is there, some of the kids who will be in August’s grade take him on a tour of the school; one of them, Jack Will, is nice, but another, Julian, is noticeably rude.
Auggie settles into the first few months of school and his classmates slowly get used to the way his face looks. He becomes friends with Jack, and with a girl named Summer who sits with him at lunch on the first day. Apparently, a rumour that touching Auggie will give you the “plague” arises, so his classmates make a point of avoiding touching him, so that Auggie begins to feel alienated. Things get a lot worse on Halloween, typically Auggie’s favorite day of the year, when Auggie overhears Jack say to Julian and some other boys that he would kill himself if he looked like Auggie. Jack is completely unaware that Auggie himself is sitting nearby, disguised in a Scream costume.
The story switches perspective to Via, Auggie’s older sister, who begins high school at the same time that Auggie starts middle school. Via has had to come to terms with the fact that her family’s universe revolves around Auggie and his needs; hers often get pushed to the side. The only person who put her first was her grandmother.
