Whitehall Reads Wonder is a community reading initiative focusing on the #1 New York Times bestselling novel, Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

Wonder tells the story of a boy named August Pullman who is born with severe craniofacial disfigurement. As a baby and a child, Auggie undergoes twenty-seven different surgeries and is now finally able to begin public school for the first time, in fifth grade. Chapters are told from the perspective of different characters, illustrating how Auggie is treated because of the way he looks. Readers learn that Auggie just wants to be a normal kid and to be accepted for the person he is. It’s a beautiful story of compassion, friendship, tolerance and intentional kindness.

We want everyone in Whitehall to read Wonder.
