Giveaway...WONDER by R.J. Palacio


 
 
Today Amy and I have a giveaway that fits quite perfectly with this month. I have just started reading this book myself and it is one that you instantly fall in love with. I can't wait until I can get my son to read it too. A very special 'thank you' goes to Random House for donating Wonder.
 
 
An emotional and beautiful novel about being the new kid.

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.
 
 
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school--until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?

R. J. Palacio has written a spare, warm, uplifting story that will have readers laughing one minute and wiping away tears the next. With wonderfully realistic family interactions (flawed, but loving), lively school scenes, and short chapters, Wonder is accessible to readers of all levels.








R. J. PALACIO is a graphic designer by day and a writer by night. She lives in New York City with her husband, two sons, and a black dog named Bear. Wonder is her first novel.
