2018 - Wonder by R.J. Palacio Wonder by R.J. Palacio

The book begins with, “My name is August. I won't describe to you what I look like.
Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.”

Auggie is ten years old and wants to be just like everyone else. He is, however, far from ordinary. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, he has been home-schooled by his parents his entire life in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, Auggie's parents are sending him to a real school. Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches, Wonder is a frank, funny, moving debut to be read in one sitting, passed along to others, and be remembered long after the final page.

Discussion will be led by Christy Billings, Chair of One Book on the Riverbend.
