Cricket Readers Recommend


by R.J.Palacio

This is a very good book about a boy who was born with facial problems and looks different from other kids. All he wants is to be normal, but you can't change things that happened in the past.

Great and powerful  book!!You have to read it.

If you read this book and liked it you should also read Out of my mind By Sharon Draper. It's about a girl with disabilites. Her mind is like a video camera that can't stop recording. But the problem is, she can't talk or walk. How will she ever express her thoughts?

I, too, enjoyed Wonder. It's hard to believe that this is R.J. Palacio's debut novel! I was blown away by the power contained in the pages of such a small, turquoise volume (I adore the cover art). A friend recommended that I read it--now I'm the one recommending it to anyone who will listen!

I agree! I found myself near to tears at the end of this book.
