"Wonder" by R.J. Palacio
I have known about this book for a very long time and have checked it out from the library more than once. This book is proof that I will always check out more than I can possibly read and each time I checked it out, it's due date came around before I read it. The only disappointing part of this book is how long it took for me to get to it. The characters are so strong and so believable. The plot is engaging. The story is wonderful. It was yet another book I couldn't put down (quite literally. I stayed up way to late reading it, stopping only when my kindle died, then woke up around 5 am to keep reading). Wonder really is a wonder! I often get asked for book recommendations and sometimes it's hard to make suggestions, not because I don't have enough books to recommend, but because they don't know what they like in order for me to get an idea of what else they might enjoy. But there are some books that I tell everyone they should read and R.J. Palacio's book just made that list! If for some reason you haven't read this book yet, go get a copy ASAP, I promise you will fall in love with it just as much as I have.
