When August, known to his family as Auggie, Starts 5th grade in a mainstream school he must learn to cope with difficult new situations and new people. He will learn that some people are complicated, some are nice and some just plain mean.

To Be Right or To Be Kind

When I received my package from Lionsgate I was so excited to delve into this book. I had heard many good things about it so I was thrilled to finally get to read it for myself.

As I began to read I fell in love with Auggie and his family. I cheered for them, cried with them and even hoped for a good ending for them.

Auggie’s story was heart breaking, inspiring and even a little mischief.

But what I learned from Auggie’s story is that people will surprise you, love you and disappoint you. They will challenge you and they will make you question things.  But as a whole people are essentially good and when faced with a situation where they are given a chance to be right or to be kind most will choose to be kind.

I highly recommend this book not only to adults to read but for kids too. It is such a good story and really shows the human spirit of love and acceptance.

Plus Wonder will be coming to life on the big screen on November 17, 2017. It will star Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Mandy Patinkin, Jacob Tremblay, and Daveed Diggs.

  1. My daughter really enjoyed this book.I was a bit reluctant because I try to know about all the books my kids read, before they read them. I let her read it anyway, but kept tabs on her (asking frequent questions, regularly) and it seemed to be a great book. She will be absolutely thrilled to hear that there’s going to be a movie.

  2. I saw the preview for this film a a while back and didn’t realize it was a book before a movie! I’ll have to read the book before I check out the film.

  3. Wow. I just watched the trailer and am in tears. I really want to see this. I have a son with special needs – his aren’t visible, but other kids weren’t nice to him. I remember those pep talks like his mom gave him.

  4. I can’t wait to see this although I think I’ll be sobbing through the whole movie. I’m going to read the book first so I’m prepared!
