Wonder Adapted Book

A parent of a student in middle school asked for an adapted version of the book, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. I was honored to receive this request as this book addresses many issues people with disabilities face in their lives and has been critically reviewed as supportive of the community. However, I wanted to be sure that the book would be acceptable to folks in the particular disability community it represents.

A friend of mine with a facial disability told me that this book was one of his favorites. He found the author had described "nearly word for word" his experiences growing up. He volunteered a picture I could use as the face of the main character, August, throughout the book. It is his school picture from when he was in middle school. Though the model for August in this version of the book wishes to be left anonymous, he has told me that I can share this book with the world. I'm glad I am able to provide a truly representational version of this book here. Enjoy!
