…not Judge a Book by Its Cover

…not judge a book by its cover

One of my favorite things about books is how enjoyable it is to share them with others. I firmly believe that a book recommendation is one of the easiest, but most rewarding gifts you can give another person. So, I’d like to start my first entry of this week of books with a thank you to my cousin who shared “Wonder” with me.

If you Google “Wonder” the powers that be will tell you it’s a children’s novel, and for some people that will be enough to look past it for more “mature” literature. That would be a real shame.

“Wonder” is about children, yes, truly remarkable children, but to restrict its audience to children seems like a real waste. The moral of this story is one we could all use at any age.

As the title of this post implies, the central theme of “Wonder” is not judging a book by its cover. But I have to say, in the literal sense, this book’s insides are just as splendid as its beautiful cover art.

“Wonder” is the story of Auggie, a ten-year-old boy who was born with a rare facial deformity. The book follows his struggles (utterly heartbreaking at times) as he moves from homeschool to middle school. It’s a rough reminder of how isolating being different can be. But of course, the lesson learned is how our differences are what make us strong, special, and our unique fabulous selves.

I don’t doubt that the movie, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Daveed Diggs, and Mandy Patinkin, among others, will be fabulous, but this book is worth a read before it hits the big screen. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder.
