Wonder by R J Palacio

A very  interesting novel about a young boy who suffers from a genetic disorder which meant he was born with a severe facial deformity. The book is written in very simple but often powerful language and raises some challenging questions about prejudice. I enjoyed this book although I do this the simplicity of the writing was a little overdone - the book could have benefitted from some more in depth analysis of the themes of the plot.
