Feature And Follow Friday (18).


Q: Have you ever looked at book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.


I wasn't a big fan at all of this cover but the saying is true never ever judge a book by it's cover, I have never cried so much in a book, it's about a boy who's face is terribly disfigured and his parents have decided that he'll attend grade 5 at an actual school rather than continue being home schooled, and how other kids react to a person with a deformity.
I gave this 5 stars and cannot say enough good things about it.

  1. Interesting. I have not heard of this book, and you're right...I wouldn't expect much from it based on the cover alone.

    Check out my Follow Friday.

  6. I have seen this book popping up a lot lately, it looks really good. Every time I see the cover, I think about The Fault in Our Stars, I guess the colors of both covers are identical and that's why! Thanks for hopping by earlier. New follower:)

  7. This book has left and impression on me that will never be released. I actually thought the cover was pretty good, given the premise. I'm recommending the book to EVERYONE I know...

  11. I have seen Wonder popping up all over the place. The premise isn't my usual read, but the reviews may sway me. I love the minimalist graphical style of the cover, no clue what it has to do with the story yet, though!

    Thanks for stopping by! And following back via GFC.Otherwhere.co

    I actually kind of like the cover, but somehow I doubt I'd have picked it up, if that makes any sense. Glad you enjoyed it!

  20. Hi Sarah :) Thanks for stopping by and deciding to follow!
    you have a new follower in me too!

    That sounds like the kind of book that would make me cry as well! Perhaps I should look in to reading it myself. I'll just have to be prepared first.
    I hope you enjoy your weekend!
