What a gem of a story. Moving and heart-warming. This book made me laugh, made me angry, made me cry — Malorie Blackman I am terrifically jealous of everybody that gets to read Wonder for the first time. Every page is honest, brave and delightful. The most sparkly book I've come across for whiles — Laura Dockrill A story of intense action and intense introspection ... a beautifully told lesson in empathy that requires that the reader find sympathy for each of the principle actors in the story. Palacio is a wonderful storyteller and her characters are bright, well-rounded and intensely likeable. Wonder is a beautiful book that is full of sorrow and triumph, emotional without being manipulative - highly recommended — Cory Doctorow boingboing.net Wonder by R. J. Palacio is the tremendously moving story of young Auggie, who was born with a rare syndrome resulting in a severe facial disfigurement. Throughout his life he is ignored, avoided, laughed at, called names and physically bullied. All this sounds very bleak, but Auggie and his family are so delightful, and there are individual acts of kindness that ultimately make Wonder an uplifting, hopeful and important book — Clare Poole The Bookseller 20111209 Can I just say right now that I loved Wonder by R.J. Palacio? I want EVERYONE to read it. (That's right, I shouted!) In fact, if it were out right now I'd be buying copies to give to other people to read. I loved it, it was so sweet and real. It's sad, funny, inspiring, infuriating, eye opening and awesome! It's hard for me to express just how much I loved this book. It's an eye opener for any age Attack of the Book
What a wonderfully inspiring book. Palacio's idea of kindness rather than compassion as a life affirming force allows the reader to judge themselves a little easier when faced with the question of how we would treat someone so visibly different from the norm. This would be a fantastic novel to read aloud to any child over 10. It would be a terrific class novel. Read it.
