Calling all fans of Wonder, the book by R.J. Palacio! We’ve compiled a list of read-alike titles to pass the time while you anxiously await the November 17 movie release.

In Wonder, we met Auggie, a ten year old fifth-grader with a facial abnormality who stole our hearts. Auggie’s love for his friends, family and all things Star Wars and Halloween gives the reader insight into his challenges and strengths. We were also introduced to a quirky cast of characters, including Mr. Browne and his precepts about courage, friendship, and love - concepts that launched a kindness movement that has swept the globe.

So if you loved Wonder, 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne’s Book of Precepts and Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories, all by R.J. Palacio, we invite you to explore the following coming-of-age titles. These stories are perfect for soon to be middle-schoolers and readers of all ages looking for a page-turner filled with humor, interesting characters, and lots of heart.

And remember, in addition to stopping by your local library for a copy of one of these books, cardholders can check out our eBook collection.
