Wonder, R. J. Palacio
  • This book immediately had my interest.  It commences with a 10-year-old voice (in first-person) that feels 10 years old...instead of like an adult pretending.  That's something.
  • I think a mature 10-year-old would cope with the content, but I would want to read it with them.  There are a few moments that I would want to discuss.  Who am I kidding?  I would want to discuss all the moments!  This book is brimming over with discussion items!  It is a great case study!  And it isn't just great material and morals for young people to consider, there was so much the parents were going through that had me thinking.
  • It has excellent plotting.
  • It surprised me.
  • The adult dialogue is superb.
  • It was one of those books that I finished and thought, "I think everyone should read that book."
  • It's an easy read and it doesn't have anything nasty in it (sex, drugs, pornography, alcohol, crazy cussing etc.).
