Wonder
R.J. Palacio
Knopf

Well it came highly recommended and this book now has my thumbs up too! August has incredible courage as he faces countless middle school problems. I really like how the author flipped from August's perspective and then to his family and friends who care so much about him. The writing is outstanding. I haven't cried in a long time over a book but this one made me shed a few. Classes of grade 5-8 students would relate to and enjoy the story and teachers will be able to engage in meaningful class discussions as the content is rich and beautifully written.
