"My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse."
“Wonder” is the story of the life of ten
year old boy, August, who was born with a severe facial disfigurement. It tells

volunteers to take part in the Hunger Games to save her sister, Prim, from
entering. The Hunger Games is an annual game set up by the Capitol to show that
they are in power. One boy and one girl will take part in the game from each of

Yet again, Hollywood has looked to the world of books for movie ideas. The latest release is "The Maze Runner" based on the book by James Dashner. So what's it about? You can see the trailer here or, better still, read the book:
"The Maze Runner" is about a boy called Thomas who is sent into a virtual
world called the Glade with his memory washed; all he can remember is his name,
Thomas. When the doors open in the lift which he is in after he has woken up, he
is welcomed by a large group of children who have been dropped into the Glade
one at a time every month. He is in a large, open area surrounded by stone
walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the
Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that
surrounds them have opened. Every night they’re closed tight...and every 30
days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. They knew that Thomas was coming.
But the next day, a girl is sent up who is the first girl to ever to be dropped
into the maze in the Glade. To their even bigger surprise there is a bigger
wonder in the message she brings. Thomas might be more important than he could
ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind...I read this book about 6 months ago and I was stunned. People should read this book because you can never predict where it is going to go and it is always leaving you in suspense.
