“I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” ~R. J. Palacio (Wonder)

It is no wonder that we are choosing Wonder by R. J. Palacio (Recommended for ages 9-12) as our tween/teens’ book pick for October, in honor of National Bullying Prevention Month.

“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.” Or can they? This book is a must-read that will leave you in awe and wonder!  Get you a copy and dive in!
