The Wonder by Emma Donoghue is about eleven year old Anna who seems to survive without food. The book is inspired by actual cases of fasting girls through history. The first half seems repetitious about one character's focus on proving that it's a hoax. Then, the action picks up a bit. The writing keeps me reading because I want to see where the story goes. Unfortunately, I am disappointed by where the story ends up, how quickly it wraps up, and how I arrive at the end not really believing or caring about the story.
