This was a fascinating look at the backstory of Wonder. Who is this boy Julian who gave Auggie such a hard time? Why did he act the way he did? Is there hope for a kid so uncaring? Follow Julian on a difficult path of self-discovery. 
This companion to Wonder is a must-read… Palacio deftly takes what we know and twists it this way and that to give us a fuller understanding of what makes people tick. Which is why I’m reading it aloud to my students.
What were PARENTS reading last week? Let’s check it out… 
(Thank you, commenters, for contributing to our book awareness. Reading is not a “school thing”.)

For every parent who leaves a comment on TODAY’S POST with what you’re reading, I’ll give your child a BUSTED ticket…

I’ve had my eyes on this one for a while. Lots of overlaps with other Dystopian trilogies. Charbonneau was generous enough to provide me with ARCs of The Testing and some cool bracelets last year. It’s time I read this. The third book comes out June 17.
Still picking this up when I need some comic relief. It reminds me a lot of Calvin and Hobbes.
I’ve listened to a bunch of this on audio, but now I’m going to be having weekly discussions on the chapters with others on Facebook. Should be interesting.

Excited about this one after the trailer, reading reviews and hearing recommendations.
 

Thanks,
