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 author Slate, October 10, 2012: ""Wonder"is the best kids' book of the year." Entertainment Weekly, February 17, 2012, "The Top 10 Things We Love This Week: " "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, April 8, 2012: "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, June 9, 2012: "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, March 1, 2012: "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." January 2013: "I think every mother and father would be better for having read it. Auggie's parents -- who are never named in the book, and don't even get to narrate a chapter of their own -- are powerful examples not only of how to shelter and strengthen a child with heartbreaking facial anomalies, but also of how to be a loving advocate to any kid." The London Times, "The Top 100 People to Watch in 2012: " "The breakout publishing sensation of 2012 will come courtesy of Palacio [and] is destined to go the way of Mark Haddon's"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"and then some."

Starred Review, Booklist, February 1, 2012: 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, February 1, 2012: "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, December 15, 2011: A memorable story of kindness, courage and wonder. "|
