This month for book club we are reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Im very excited to read this especially after reading the synopsis:
"August Pullman was born with a facial deformity 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."
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this book.
