Awesome! I love her books and the feelings they invoke. Kindness matters. Every middle school kid should read these books. ( )

It's been a couple of years since my reading of Wonder, but I remember loving it. Reading this chapter from Julian's perspective (he's the bully in the book) makes me want to read the book again.

Julian finally realizes the errors in his behavior while staying with his grandmother in France. He learns that she was saved once by someone that frightened her. Julian also learns that he was named after that young man.

A great addition to the world of Wonder. ( )

I can't say I'm too fond of Before (the retelling of Wonder from Julian's point of view), but I loved Grandmère's part, even if Julian and his mom switched their positions too quickly for my taste. ( )

A good story about how a bully reevaluates his actions. It's true that some people don't realize that they are being hurtful until they are told that they are. The grandmother's story is a tear-jerker. ( )

The rabid fans of WONDER can finally discover what Julian was thinking as the events unfolded. While a bit neatly constructed at times from an adult's perspective, kids won't care, and the protagonist's final discoveries have unexpected poignancy. Recommended. Review based on a digital galley provided by the publisher via NetGalley.com. (56) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

From the very first day Auggie and Julian met in the pages of Wonder, it was clear they were never going to be friends, with Julian treating Auggie like he had the plague. And while Wonder told Auggie's story through six different viewpoints, Julian's perspective was never shared. Until now. The Julian Chapter will finally reveal the bully's side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption?… (more)
