Great youth/teen read!

My son needed to read this book for school. It was in such demand from the local library I bought a copy so I could also read it. It was such a great story and a flowy efficient read. I recommend it to any parent/child ages 10 and up. Excellent subject matter.

Knowledge can dissolve fear!!!

This is a awesome book. I recommend getting it for your children and reading it together. Different in today's world is discouraged. Different by birth can be terrible unless you have wise parents. My 4th grade granddaughter is reading this and she is engrossed! I also recommend 365 Days of Wonder. Enjoy!!!

Wonder is a MUST READ

One of the most enjoyable, thought provoking and important reads for adults and particularly children. The book's seemingly simple structure, the children's perspective and vivid imagery that's conjured up make this such an easy and engaging read. There is just so much to get out of this book and the emotional journey is thrilling...I've cried on the tube, wanted to jump up and cheer at points and haven't forgotten one of the characters since reading it. All probably sounds OTT but really a fantastic read...thank you RJ Palacio!
