“I know I’m not an ordinary kid I’ve had 27 surgeries they help me to breathe, to see, to hear without a hearing aid but none of them have made me look ordinary.” ‘Wonder’ tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a young boy born with a facial deformity who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. He is destined to fit in at a new school, and to make everyone understand he’s just another ordinary kid, and that beauty isn’t skin deep. “I know I’ll never be an ordinary kid. People don’t like to touch me because they think I’m contagious.”
“You’re the toughest kid in that school show them. You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. You’re gonna feel like you’re all alone Auggie but you’re not.” Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder, adapted from R.J. Palacio’s book of the same name. “I know you don’t always like it but I love it. It’s my son’s face.” “You are not ugly.”
“You ever thought about having plastic surgery?” “Dude this is after plastic surgery. It takes a lot of work to look this good.” Directed by Stephen Chbosky and written by Steve Conrad based on the 2012 novel the movie is actually based on the three books, Wonder, Auggie & Me, and 365 Days of Wonder.
