Wonder is a wonder: a book that grasps you into its world and doesn't let you out till the end. 
Wonder explores the true meaning of what it is to be a friend. The characters in the book felt so, so real, and I kept thinking, "I want to meet you!".
The main character, Auggie, born with a very rare facial deformity, has been protected at home all his life. But his parents decide that its time to take him into the real world, so this coming fall, Auggie will enter 5th grade at a school called Beecher Prep. Mixed with excitement and fear, Auggie isn't sure if he wants it or not.
The book describes his experiences at school, the ups and downs of what happens and what changes to Auggie throughout the school year.
By June, Auggie has made new friends, experienced school, and has accomplished something one has to be very brave to do. I was proud of him at the end of the book!
A great author can create a whole world within just the pages of their book, can make characters come alive. R.J. Palacio, author of Wonder, did exactly that.
I love writing, and hope that I can make my stories pop out of their pages and become alive, too.

I haven't written in a while. But I'm feeling good. I don't know what to write.
