'WONDER tells the story of Auggie Pullman: an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, whose first year at school changed the lives and the perspectives of everyone around him.

AUGGIE & ME is a new side to the WONDER story: three new chapters from three different characters - bully Julian, oldest friend Christopher and classmate Charlotte - giving an insight into how Auggie has touched their own lives. Thought-provoking, surprising, infuriating, heartbreaking and heartwarming, AUGGIE & ME is a must-read for the thousands of readers who loved WONDER.'

This book was WONDERful.

After reading Wonder I was so excited to get my hands on this book, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

I was really glad that this was a companion novel and not a sequel. I loved the open ended way in which Wonder finished, so I was pleased to know that Wonder wasn't going to be continued.

One of the great things about this novel was that we got to see other sides to the more minor characters from Wonder. We got to see their takes on certain situations. This made for a really great and interesting reading experience.

I really appreciated that none of these stories tried to justify behaviours from Wonder. These stories were just to give a wider understanding of what was taking place as the original story was unfolding.

R.J. Palacio has written the perfect companion novel, and I am so glad that I have now read it. It is not very often that a book takes my breath away by R.J. Palacio has taken my breath away twice now.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. I truly believe that everyone could learn something from these stories especially younger readers.

Auggie & Me by R.J. Palacio is a must read for everyone.
