Wonder by R. Palacio has completely captured my heart, as well as the hearts of kids all over the world. I have been constantly searching for books like Wonder to add to my collection. I have read Wonder more times than I can probably remember. I came upon it back in college when I was babysitting a kid who absolutely loved it. His passion enticed me.
It reminds me of several other amazing middle grade chapter books that do the same thing. Her older brother, Devon, used to help her make sense of the confusing things in the world, but he was killed in a school shooting. Caitlin tries to figure out his death and her world as her father retreats into his sorrow. I think all teenagers should read this book. Stargirl is a former homeschooler who begins public school for the first time. Which pretty much sums up the high school experience.
Wonder begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include the perspectives of his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others.

We're All Wonders children's book read aloud by Books With Blue
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. In a world awash in awesome, sensual technological experiences, wonder has diverse powers, including awakening us to unexpected ecological intimacies and entanglements. Yet this deeply felt experience—at once cognitive, aesthetic, and ethical—has been dangerously neglected in our cultural education. In order to cultivate the imaginative empathy and caution this feeling evokes, we need to teach ourselves and others to read for wonder.
Everyone of her fans has found something to relate to within this series of extremely inspirational and entertaining novels. Reaching a global audience, Palacio has written something that has said something profound about growing up, as her characters find their place in the world. Generally this has received favorable reviews from both the critics and the general public alike, managing to speak directly to the reader on an almost personal level. Eventually reaching the big-screen in as well, it really is a testament to the original creation of RJ Palacio as an author. Not letting any of this hold him back, he is determined to live life as an ordinary kid, despite what others may think of him. Dealing with the prejudices of the community at large, he initially hides from the world behind a large costume space helmet. After some time though, he manages to come out of his shell, all whilst coping with the difficulties that face him, such as bullying and ignorance.
