#WonderWednesday: Washington Post: Girl Tells Wonder Author What Book Means to Her




Reading can help us make sense of our world. I do not know what I would do without the information and escapism books provide. They can help you enhance your mind or boost your mood taking you to far off lands away from from the rigors of daily life. 


The book "Wonder" enhanced Clair Juip's life in immeasurable, powerful ways. The power came from the book "Wonder." The New York Times best-selling book, written by R.J. Palacio, helped Clair Juip better understand her and her brother's struggle with a rare disease called, Friedreich’s ataxia, which affects the nerve cells in the body. The characters of Auggie Pullman, and his sister Via, in Palacio's book helped Clair make better sense of her own reality. After entering an essay contest, Clair had the opportunity to meet the author in September. Watch the video in this link for more details on this story.
