'Has the power to move hearts and change minds' Guardian'Tremendously uplifting and a novel of all-too-rare power' Sunday Express'An amazing book . . . I absolutely loved it. I cried my eyes out' Tom FletcherRead the award-winning, multi-million copy bestselling phenomenon that is WONDER in this new tenth anniversary edition. 'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old.

He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox.

He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life.

Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it.

All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?A funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut - and a true global phenomenon - to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.
