Have you heard of the book Wonder? I wouldn't be surprised if you knew. It's an amazing book! The book is full of emotions. It made me laugh then tear up just a few moments after. It is a heartwarming, hopeful, humorous, and unique book filled with surprises. It makes you feel as if you have known each character for years and years. The author, R. J. Palacio, might as well be a mastermind! He seized your emotions and put it into a single book, so when you read it, you will feel every ounce of work he put into making the book. It left me crying, laughing, smiling, and excited to read more. I also love the main concepts of the book. "Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. Those are qualities that define us as human beings, to greatness." was written in the book. It defines one of the overall themes. It encourages you to always be your best self and do something kind for others. It influences you to change the world and make it better. It teaches you to be kind, have courage, and embrace yourself no matter what you look like, and to NOT hide your face in an astronaut helmet. On the cover it says, " You can't blend in when you were born to stand out." We should listen to it, understand it, then do it. I love what the book can teach you about life. I love how it makes you excited to uncover all the hidden messages waiting for you. I love how it can make you a little bit better of a person. I love the concepts, emotions, the thought, and the hard put into a single book. It really is a Wonder -ful book!
