in a Nutshell:
Published in August of 2015, this book was written by R.J. Palacio in response to thousands of requests by readers who wanted to know more about the characters who impacted Auggie's life in her award winning book, WONDER. This book expands the story of Wonder through additional narratives told from the perspectives of three characters who were each impacted by knowing Auggie: Julian, Christopher, and Charlotte. Readers will at last have some of their questions answered about why Julian was such a bully to Auggie, who Auggie had been friends with before Beecher Prep, and how he impacted other students at the school. This book is full of the same WONDER-ful sensitivity, charm, and truisms as R.J. Palacio's first book...and fans of Wonder are bound to adore it!
