Slate:
Wonder is the best kids’ book of the year.”

Entertainment Weekly:
“In a wonder of a debut, Palacio has written a crackling page-turner filled with characters you can’t help but root for.”

The New York Times:
“Rich and memorable…It’s Auggie and the rest of the children who are the real heart of ‘Wonder,’ and Palacio captures the voices of girls and boys, fifth graders and teenagers, with equal skill.”

The Wall Street Journal:
“What makes R.J. Palacio’s debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon generosity with which she tells Auggie’s story…The result is a beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”

The Huffington Post: 
“It’s in the bigger themes that Palacio’s writing shines. This book is a glorious exploration of the nature of friendship, tenacity, fear, and most importantly, kindness.”

“Full of heart, full of truth, Wonder is a book about seeing the beauty that’s all around us.  I dare you not to fall in love with Auggie Pullman.”
- Rebecca Stead, Newbery award-winning author of When You Reach Me

“It is the deceptive simplicity and honesty of the work that make Wonder so memorable. Every single character seems real and well drawn and oh-so human…This book is beautiful.” - Christopher Paul Curtis, Newbery award-winning author of Bud, Not Buddy

“A beautiful story of kindness and courage. There are many real and well-developed characters, and they each have their shining moments. Of course, Auggie shines the brightest.” - Clare Vanderpool, Newbery award-winning author of Moon Over Manifest

Wonder is a beautifully told story about heartache, love, and the value of human life. One comes away from it wanting to be a better person.” - Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery honor-winning author of Lily’s Crossing and Pictures of Hollis Woods

“Wonder is a shining jewel of a story that cannot help but encourage readers of all ages to do better, to be better, in how they treat others in life. I’m totally in love with this novel.”  - Trudy Ludwig, anti-bullying advocate and author of My Secret BullyConfessions of a Former BullyBetter Than You, and Just Kidding
