We're all wonders
I know I can't change the way I look. But maybe, just maybe, people can change the way they see... Auggie knows he's no ordinary kid. He does plenty of ordinary things. He feels ordinary. He just doesn't look ordinary. But it is not just Auggie who's different, and everyone is a wonder- if only they could see it.
