Review Amazon Best Books of the Month for Kids, February 2012:
Wonder is a rare gem of a novel–beautifully written and populated by
characters who linger in your memory and heart. August Pullman is a 10-year-
old boy who likes Star Wars and Xbox, ordinary except for his jarring facial
anomalies. Homeschooled all his life, August heads to public school for fifth
grade and he is not the only one changed by the experience–something we learn
about first-hand through the narratives of those who orbit his world. August’s
internal dialogue and interactions with students and family ring true, and
though remarkably courageous he comes across as a sweet, funny boy who wants
the same things others want: friendship, understanding, and the freedom to be
himself. “It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly. What is
essential is invisible to the eye.” From The Little Prince and R.J. Palacio’s
remarkable novel, Wonder.–Seira Wilson Read more Review 1 New York Times

Booklist Best of Children’s Books “Wonder is essentially … a wonder. It’s
well-written, engaging, and so much fun to read that the pages almost turn
themselves. More than that, Wonder touches the heart in the most life-
affirming, unexpected ways, delivering in August Pullman a character whom
readers will remember forever. Do yourself a favor and read this book – your
life will be better for it.” – Nicholas Sparks, 1 New York Times bestselling
authorSlate.com:”Wonder is the best kids’ book of the year.”Entertainment
Weekly: “In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner
filled with characters you can’t help but root for.”The New York Times:”Rich
and memorable…It’s Auggie and the rest of the children who are the real
heart of ‘Wonder,’ and Palacio captures the voices of girls and boys, fifth
graders and teenagers, with equal skill.”The Wall Street Journal:”What makes
R.J. Palacio’s debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon
generosity with which she tells Auggie’s story…The result is a beautiful,
funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”The Huffington
Post: “It’s in the bigger themes that Palacio’s writing shines. This book is a
glorious exploration of the nature of friendship, tenacity, fear, and most
importantly, kindness.””Full of heart, full of truth, Wonder is a book about
seeing the beauty that’s all around us. I dare you not to fall in love with
Auggie Pullman.”- Rebecca Stead, Newbery award-winning author of When You
Reach Me”It is the deceptive simplicity and honesty of the work that make
Wonder so memorable. Every single character seems real and well drawn and oh-
so human…This book is beautiful.” – Christopher Paul Curtis, Newbery award-
winning author of Bud, Not Buddy”A beautiful story of kindness and courage.
There are many real and well-developed characters, and they each have their
shining moments. Of course, Auggie shines the brightest.” – Clare Vanderpool,
Newbery award-winning author of Moon Over Manifest”Wonder is a beautifully
told story about heartache, love, and the value of human life. One comes away
from it wanting to be a better person.” – Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time
Newbery honor-winning author of Lily’s Crossing and Pictures of Hollis
Woods”Wonder is a shining jewel of a story that cannot help but encourage
readers of all ages to do better, to be better, in how they treat others in
life. I’m totally in love with this novel.” – Trudy Ludwig, anti-bullying
advocate and author of My Secret Bully, Confessions of a Former Bully, Better
Than You, and Just KiddingStarred Review, Publishers Weekly:“Few first novels
pack more of a punch: it’s a rare story with the power to open eyes–and
hearts–to what it’s like to be singled out for a difference you can’t
control, when all you want is to be just another face in the crowd.”Starred
Review, Booklist:“Palacio makes it feel not only effortless but downright
graceful, and by the stand-up-and-cheer conclusion, readers will be doing just
that, and feeling as if they are part of this troubled but ultimately warm-
hearted community.”Starred Review, School Library Journal:”Palacio has an
exceptional knack for writing realistic conversation and describing the
thoughts and emotions of the characters…A well-written, thought-provoking
book.”Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:“A memorable story of kindness, courage
and wonder.” Read more See all Editorial Reviews
