Publisher's Summary

Over one million people have read or listened to and loved Wonder. Now listeners will have a chance to hear from the one of the book's most controversial characters - Julian.

From the very first day Auggie and Julian met in the number-one New York Times best seller Wonder, it was clear they were never going to be friends, with Julian treating Auggie like he had the plague. And while Wonder told Auggie's story through six different viewpoints, Julian's perspective was never shared. Fans could only guess what he was thinking.

Until now. The Julian Chapter will finally reveal the bully's side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption?

    I love kids books, true crime stories, and memoirs about people who have overcome incredible challenges or still fight them every day.

    Story
    "Great follow up to Wonder - Julian's perspective"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Julian Chapter?

    Julian's realization of his role in the tough year in fifth grade


    What about Michael Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    Sounds like the way a KidMin that age group would talk


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt good that Julian admitted his role in the bad school year and attempted to make amends with someone he hated


    Any additional comments?

    Great book to follow up wonder about finally accepting the differences of Augie and reaching out to him. Inspiring that he grew up and full of seeking forgiveness and forgiving others.

    Story
    "Disappointing sequel"
    Would you try another book from R.J. Palacio and/or Michael Chamberlain?

    I loved Wonder and think that it should be required reading for the entire human race. It is an amazing, powerful book. The Julian Chapter rehashes a lot of the same material without adding much additional insight.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I was unhappy that a younger actor was not chosen for this part. Julian is a 5th grader and the adult male voice detracts from the story.

    Story
    "Awesome Follow-up"
    If you could sum up The Julian Chapter in three words, what would they be?

    Five words would sum this story up better than three: Two Sides to Every Story. After hearing Julian's side of the story we see how his bullying behavior was the result of his own issues, and how the parenting he received unintentionally exacerbated the problem. The Julian Chapter underscored the lessons learned in Wonder.


    What does Michael Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was BRILLIANT!! Michael Chamberlain voiced the characters - children and adults, male and female, accented or not – so perfectly! His voice made the story for my family.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several moments in the story were moving. The ending was especially rewarding.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonder was excellent, but The Julian Chapter made it even better. Augie and Julian's stories are lessons in empathy for children, but perhaps more importantly, for those adults that go to extremes to shield their children from the ugliness that is an inevitable part of growing up and life in general.
