What the Critics Say

“Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart - it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!” (Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories)

    "fantastic listen"

    This is a great book! I started listening with my son, but found myself listening to it with out him. August has strength he doesn't even know he has. Great characters and a good lesson in not judging a book by it's cover.
