On the second Friday of every month, join NADIA L KING author of Jenna's Truth for snacks and chats, the perfect way to kickstart the weekend.
This month we'll be discussing R.J. Palacio's Wonder.
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. Wonder, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
The unforgettable, life-affirming and internationally bestselling story of a boy who's desperate to blend in, but is destined to stand out.
