Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face.

Auggie & Me gives readers a special look at Auggie’s world through three new points of view. These stories are an extra peek at Auggie before he started at Beecher Prep and during his first year there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great There's always more to a person than what meets the eye. It seems that in case, even the unlikeables from the other story became a bit likable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from How to like the unlikeable What a great follow up to Wonder. Makes those characters that were hard to like in Wonder a lot more likeable. Just goes to show, you don't know what someone else's story could be until you walk in their shows

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book! I absolutely love this book and have read it multiple times! I read Auggie and Me before Wonder, and I found that even though Wonder came first, and then Auggie and Me, you didn't have to read the first book first to understand the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This was a fantastic companion to the book Wonder. I appreciate how Palacio stayed true to the characters and didn't try to erase their mistakes. I ended up not hating any of the main characters by the end of their chapter, even if i did hate them in the beginning. Humanizing, inspiring and sweet. I look forward to Palacio's future books.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OKAY!! I bought this after the first book, so it's no surprise that its not as good. Wonder was a "hit it out of the park" smashing success of a book. Regardless, its still pretty good. Buy on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I read wonder in class and after I finished I started reading this book. I finished this in a day as it was so good. I like how the author wrote the book through the people around auggie's perspectives. My favorite chapter was the Julian chapter, it was interesting and sad as it almost made me cry. If you liked the book wonder than you will definitely like this book.

Read from the Book

OrdinaryOkay, okay, okay.I know, I know, I know.I haven’t been nice to August Pullman!Big deal. It’s not the end of the world, people! Let’s stop with the drama, okay? There’s a whole big world out there, and not everyone is nice to everyone else. That’s just the way it is. So, can you please get over it? I think it’s time to move on and get on with your life, don’t you?Jeez!I don’t get it. I really don’t. One minute, I’m like, the most popular kid in the fifth grade. And the next minute, I’m like, I don’t know. Whatever. This bites. This whole year bites! I wish Auggie Pullman had never come to Beecher Prep in the first place! I wish he had kept his creepy little face hidden away like in The Phantom of the Opera or something. Put a mask on, Auggie! Get your face out of my face, please. Everything would be a lot easier if you would just disappear.At least for me. I’m not saying it’s a picnic for him, either, by the way. I know it can’t be easy for him to look in the mirror every day, or walk down the street. But that’s not my problem. My problem is that everything’s different since he’s been coming to my school. The kids are different. I’m different. And it sucks big-time.I wish everything was the way it used to be in the fourth grade. We had so, so, so much fun back then. We would play tackle-tag in the yard, and not to brag, but everyone always wanted a piece of me, you know? I’m just sayin’. Everyone always wanted to be my partner when we’d do social studies projects. And everyone always laughed when I said something funny.At lunchtime, I’d always sit with my peeps, and we were like, it. We were totally it. Henry. Miles. Amos. Jack. We were it! It was so cool. We had all these secret jokes. Little hand signals for stuff.I don’t know why that had to change. I don’t know why everyone got so stupid about stuff.Actually, I do know why: it was because of Auggie Pullman. The moment he showed up, that’s when things stopped being the way they used to be. Everything was totally ordinary. And now things are messed up. And it’s because of him.And Mr. Tushman. In fact, it’s kind of totally Mr. Tushman’s fault.

Palacio's debut novel so remarkable, and so lovely, is the uncommon generosity with which she tells Auggie's story…The result is a beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation.”The Huffington Post, "It's in the bigger themes that Palacio's writing shines. This book is a glorious exploration of the nature of friendship, tenacity, fear, and most importantly, kindness.""Full of heart, full of truth, Wonder is a book about seeing the beauty that's all around us.  I dare you not to fall in love with Auggie Pullman."- Rebecca Stead, Newbery award-winning author of When You Reach Me"It is the deceptive simplicity and honesty of the work that make Wonder so memorable. Every single character seems real and well drawn and oh-so human...This book is beautiful." - Christopher Paul Curtis, Newbery award-winning author of Bud, Not Buddy"A beautiful story of kindness and courage. There are many real and well-developed characters, and they each have their shining moments. Of course, Auggie shines the brightest." - Clare Vanderpool, Newbery award-winning author of Moon Over Manifest"Wonder is a beautifully told story about heartache, love, and the value of human life.
