R. J. Palacio
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
WONDER IS SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS AND JACOB TREMBLAY!
Over 3 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder—the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement—and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. Auggie & Me gives readers a special look at Auggie’s world through three new points of view. Previously only available in ebook, now they’ll be published all together--complete with an introduction from the author on how she came to write them--in a gorgeous hardcover package!
These stories are an extra peek at Auggie before he started at Beecher Prep and during his first year there. Readers get to see him through the eyes of Julian, the bully; Christopher, Auggie’s oldest friend; and Charlotte, Auggie’s new friend at school. Together, these three stories are a treasure for readers who don’t want to leave Auggie behind when they finish Wonder.

Which she simply dropped on top of our backpacks by the door without saying a word. The price of admission. Swoosh. Swoosh. Swoosh. “God bless America.” Even Ximena said that now.

Maya had a way of being very black-and-white about things. “I guess.” “I’m telling you, it’s Ximena Chin’s fault,” Maya continued. “It’s only because of her. If she hadn’t started this year, everything would be the same as it was. She’s the bad influence.” I knew that that was how Maya saw things. It was one of the reasons I never went into too much detail about the dance
awesome how she transformed each of our hairstyles into big, round bouffants with curled, flicked-up ends, topped by a cloud of hair spray. Although we all had such different types of hair, Mrs. Atanabi somehow made us match perfectly! We were going on last. It felt like such a long wait! We held hands the whole time and tried to talk ourselves out of being completely panicked. When it was finally time for us to go on, Mrs. Atanabi brought us downstairs to the back stage of the Stern
