The Julian Chapter by R. J. Palacio

The Julian Chapter is Palacio's one chapter addition to Wonder. Wonder is one of my all time favorite books that I told everyone about last year! I love the way Palacio writes the story of August Pullman's 5th grade year from the perspectives of several different characters. One character readers never heard from, though, was Julian, the kid who bullied Auggie relentlessly. In The Julian Chapter we get to see Auggie through Julian's eyes. It is a fascinating and thought-provoking read!  I highly recommend it for all Wonder fans!

Note: Perhaps because it is only one long chapter (about 80 pages), The Julian Chapter is only available as a $1.99 e-book. Hopefully, it will be on OverDrive, our district digital library, soon!
