Publisher Comments:

Mientras R.J. Palacio se dedicaba a diseñar preciosas cubiertas para cientos de autores, soñaba con escribir algún día una novela. Sin embargo, le parecía que nunca llegaba el momento hasta que se dio cuenta de que lo único que tenía que hacer era empezar a escribir. La lección de August es su primera novela y, después de los elogios unánimes que ha despertado en todo el mundo, seguro que no será la última.

After I finished "Wonder," I wondered if anyone else found it as profoundly moving as I did. Spoiler alert abounds here along with the number of times the title occurs in different forms: I uncharacteristically welled up in two parts when reading the book. The first time was when Daisy needed to be put down. I thought of our beloved, 17-year-old Noodles, one of three puppies born on our bed, to a champion Golden and a smiling black dog. The way we all took the loss was as keen as losing another member of the family. It was like Auggie and his family were ably described by Palacio. The second tearful experience in Palacio's wonderful book occurred, when everyone started coming to Auggie’s aid on several occasions. It begins, as does life with outsiders, in small spurts and starts, until it becomes a wave. As the main character develops, Palacio was able to capture each supporting character's humanity, give each a unique voice, stay true to that voice of each character throughout the telling of the story in a way that a human and not a character would react in each situation she described. She is, quite simply, an able and fun story-teller.

My daughter "taught" the book to her 7th graders and let me borrow it from her library. It was absolutely brilliant that her principal had the entire school read it and discuss its unique and yet recognizable characters and all the challenging situations that many middle school students face in and out of school and community. Each reader knows at least one, or maybe a composite of the characters.

Even more super is that Palacio chose to write it, giving such clear, age-appropriate voices to each of her characters as she developed her story about this little boy who ought not to have lived from the day he was born, who struggled, as did his marvelously supportive parents, his older sister, and his emerging friends with his development and his ultimate acceptance on a number of levels: "The only reason I'm not ordinary. is that other people don't see me that way."
