New at the library – “Wonder” by R. J. Palacio. August Pullman is… different. He was born with a facial deformity that kept him from attending public schools until the fifth grade. But now, he’s trying to integrate into a normal school, despite how people stop and stare. As the story goes on, we get a glimpse of Auggie through the eyes of his classmates, his sister and her boyfriend, and others, to show a picture of a community struggling with compassion, empathy, and acceptance.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
