Have you ever Wondered??



By: R.J. Palacio

Genre: Juvenile fiction

Pages: 315

Published: 2012

Read: December

4 out of 5

I loved this book. I loved August’s strength. I loved his sister’s honesty, even if not spoken directly to August. I loved his friends and their support for August, but still they were honest to themselves about the difficulties they felt with the friendship. All of these aspects of Wonder made the story that much more realistic and true for me. The story wasn’t sugar coated and as a person with a slight disability I understood some of August’s feelings and the dreaded stares.  I feel every middle school child, boys and girls, should have to read this book – both the bullies and the bullied.
