This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

Wonder by R. J. Palacio book #29

This was a story of a boy that was born with a genetic defect that made him pretty hard to look at. He didn't start attending school with other children until his 5th grade year due to many medical procedures. As we all know middle school is a super tough time to even have a pimple so having a kind of condition that this August was born with I cannot imagine. 

The story is told through many different view points from Auggie, to his sister to the friends around him. They were each effected in one way or another by Auggie. It was lovely to see this boy had such an amazing support group. 

If you are looking for an underdog story that will warm your heart this book will do it. I just know Karen would have finished this book and texted me right away to add it to my list!
