Hope you are enjoying Wonder. There is a follow-up book called The Julian Chapter. This book is the story from Julian’s perspective. It’s a powerful story that will add to our discussion. If you haven’t read it, I would encourage you to read it. The book is about 60 pages. It seems to be available in ebook ($1.99/$2.99) and audiobook only. I borrowed Wonder from Overdrive Media (and have returned it).
Next Book –Wonder by R. J. Palacio
We will meet on Sunday, October 26th, at 6:00 pm at Cross of Glory Church
Everyone is welcome to read the book and join us for a great discussion.
I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.
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 more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, 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 portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
The next book we are discussing is:
Finding Me by Michelle Knight
