R. J. Palacio lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband, two sons and two dogs (Bear and Beau). Her debut novel, Wonder, has been on the New York Times bestseller list since March, 2012, and has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. The book's message of kindness has inspired the Choose Kind movement, and has been embraced by readers, young and old, around the world.
The multi-million-copy bestseller WONDER showed how choosing kindness and empathy can change the lives of those around you.
Now, in AUGGIE & ME, you can discover a new side to the WONDER story in three new chapters from three different characters-
Julian- Auggie's classroom bully
Christopher- Auggie's oldest friend
Charlotte- Auggie's classmate
These three stories are heartbreaking, surprising, funny and hopeful. Just like WONDER, AUGGIE & ME will make you laugh, cry and try to choose kind.
