Read Wonder Author R.J. Palacio Wonder Author R.J. Palacio Review Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB T of one community's struggle with empathy compassion and acceptanceIn a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope RJ Palacio has called her debut novel a meditation on kindness indeed every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship Auggie is a hero to root for who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand outJoin the conversation #t You don t need your eyes to love right You just feel it inside you I chose this uote as my introduction to this review because I think it fits the prevailing mood of the book so very well In my case Wonder definitely wasn t a sad book or a book that caused me to cry rivers of tears it however was a book that made me think a lot about life though I mean how could you not think about Auggie and the world we live in after finishing this book How could you not wonder if you re a good and righteous person It s easy to say you d never talk bad about a boy like Auggie but how many of us can truly say that they never said a single bad word about another person How many can say they never bitched about someone else I think the answer is none Jack sometimes you don t have to mean to hurt someone to hurt someone You understand We re all human we have our dumb moments we make mistakes and we all have flaws The thing is no one is perfect and I think Wonder teaches this lesson very well Not directly or forthright like you would expect but subtly and with a lot of finesse We can read it in the way the students react when Auggie starts to attend their school we can see it in the blunt hostility Julian is showing whenever no adult is around to see it We witness it in the change of the students in the change of the tide And this my dear friends is so beautiful and amazing to watch At first I admit it I was only friendly to him because MrTushman asked me to be especially nice and all that But now I would choose to hang out with him He laughs at all my jokes And I kind of feel like I can tell August anything Like he s a good friend Like if all the guys in fifth grade were lined up against a wall and I got to choose anyone I wanted to hang out with I would choose August Slowly and gradually the children around Auggie begin to realise that he s just another normal kid and that his face might look different but that he s actually a really cool guy to hang out with He convinces them with his actions and his wonderful character Not with his looks XD She kissed me all over my face She kissed my eyes that came down too far She kissed my cheeks that looked punched in She kissed my tortoise mouth She said soft words that I know were meant to help me but words can t change my face Still there were many moments my heart ached for August and sometimes I just wanted to hug him like his mom It made me sad that he had to fight for being accepted that he couldn t just go out like any other kid that there always were people who stared at him But I didn t just feel for our cute and adorable protagonist but also for his family and friends The moment his father cried alone in his bedroom touched me so much I just couldn t stop thinking about it Not even after I closed the book His back was to the door so he didn t know I was there At first I thought he was laughing because his shoulders were shaking but then he put his palms on his eyes and I realized he was crying It was the uietest crying I ve ever heard Like a whisper I know everyone talks about Auggie and his experiences but I think his parents deserve to be mentioned as welll They raised two wonderful children Against all odds and with all the love a parent is able to give For me they are the secret stars of the book and I love them with all my heart They raised Auggie and Via to be two awesome and independent kids and this is an achievement Plus can we acknowledge their grandma as well I loved the scene with Via and her because it was done so beautifully I love Auggie very very much she said softly I can still remember her Portuguese accent the way she rolled her r s But he has many angels looking out for him already Via And I want you to know that you have me looking out for you Okay menina uerida I want you to know that you are number one for me You are my She looked out at the ocean and spread her hands out like she was trying to smooth out the waves You are my everything You understand me Via Tu es meu tudo Their grandma understood Via and her troubles and it may seem strange but I was so thankful for her saying those things As Auggie s sister Via didn t always get the attention she needed because parents tend to take care of the kid that has problems and is in need of their advertency They had no other choice it s only natural Still I loved Olivia for accepting this and I loved her even for supporting her brother She obviously couldn t help but feel alone sometimes though and it was really comforting to know that her grandma was watching out for her Well her grandma and Justin of course P I m sure if I wanted I could probably write an entire essay about this book but I guess I ll just leave it at that In this particular case it might be best if you experience this wonderful book yourself All I m saying is that Wonder was a heart warming and super sweet read I can recommend it to everyone and I really hope many people will learn from it and will become broad minded and kind in the future Open your minds and heartsYou re beautiful and perfectly imperfect don t let anyone tell you otherwise You were wearing that helmet all the time And the real real real real truth is I missed seeing your face Auggie I know you don t always love it but you have to understand I love it I love this face of yours Auggie completely and passionately And it kind of broke my heart that you were always covering it up

Read Wonder Author R.J. Palacio Wonder Author R.J. Palacio Review Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB August Pullman was born with a facial difference that up until now has prevented him from going to a mainstream school Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep he wants nothing than to be treated as an ordinary kid but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face Wonder a #1 New York Times bestseller begins from Auggie's point of view but soon switches to include his classmates his sister her boyfriend and others These perspectives converge in a portrai Wonder is one of those rare books that makes you want to hug everyone in it so tightly that they ll have no doubt about how much you love themand beyond that it also makes you want to reach out and hug the whole world It s an upbeat humorous life affirming story that deserves to be read and it s one that may just change its readers tooIf you remember how terrifying it was to be a kid on a day to day basis you ll appreciate August s story 10 year old Auggie is going to school for the first time in his life and he has to navigate new rules learn to interact with teachers and figure out how to make new friends In addition he also has a severe facial deformity that stops strangers in their tracks so all the usual perils of the fifth grade take on even heightened stakes With the matter of fact wisdom that warmed Beverly Cleary s books this story about growing up is full of heart and humor and written with a clear eyed intelligence that never descends into cynicism Auggie s smart funny personality will win over readers who will agonize with him over the complicated web of friendships and family even as they cheer for him as he learns some of life s big and scary lessons It s okay I know I m weird looking take a look I don t bite Hey the truth is if a wookie started going to school all of a sudden I d be curious I d probably stare a bit And if I was walking with Jack or Summer I d probably whisper to them Hey there s the wookie And if the wookie caught me saying that he d know I wasn t trying to be mean I was just pointing out the fact that he s a wookie Even with a positive attitude and smart loving parents however Auggie s story is not an easy one to read and my emotions ran wildly from sadness to hilarity to terrible anger at what happens to him Not all kids are nice Some kids behave one way in front of adults and another way in front of kids Some adults are downright cruel And just when you think life can t possibly get any harder or challenging sometimes it doesAlthough the book is primarily told from Auggie s perspective it was a surprise to me when it switched to a few other points of view With a total of six different voices I would normally say this is far too many but in this particular case every person offered an insight into August s beautiful personality and amazing life in a way that would be impossible to otherwise know Reading about Auggie s 27 surgeries rejoicing at his vibrant inner life hurting for him when he felt lonely or misunderstood and seeing his life from various different perspectives it s impossible not to be moved by his story And how can you not love a boy who understands that sometimes his mom might need his precious teddy bear than he doesNot entirely random side note view spoilerIn my former life I worked in movie publicity In that position you re subjected to a lot of wheedling and sob stories so it s natural to develop a pretty jaded viewpoint So when a film critic forwarded a plea to me from the mom of a young boy who wanted to attend an advance screening of the latest Harry Potter movie my first reaction was automatic suspicion why couldn t this kid wait the two months until the movie was out I did a lot of research before I finally spoke to the mom but I m so glad I did Because it turned out the boy was in the advanced stages of an incurable illness and was not expected to live much longerIt made me so terribly ashamed that I had doubted the story Understandable yes but I knew that the letter could easily have been overlooked in the hustle and bustle of the business and it scared me to think that something that so important might have been lost because of other things that mattered so much less In this case I made sure this boy and his family got the VIP treatment including a ton of swag and a very memorable evening He was absolutely incandescent that night and his parents told me afterwards that it was one of the happiest experiences in his young life When his mom told me a few months later that he d passed away it was terribly sad But I was so grateful to have had that brief contact and to have helped bring a tiny bit of joy into his last months It was just as Wonder is a reminder that it s so much easier to look the other way because of impatience or fear But sometimes reaching out to another human being can be a life changing experience for everyone concerned As many have said before me taking action doesn t just change the other person it also changes you hide spoiler
