Just so you know I am 14 just using my moms account.

An excellent sequel (is it technically a sequel? It happens at the same time as Wonder) to an excellent book! If you love wonder you will love this. There is, however, a car crash (everyone is fine). There is also a scary Holocaust part in Julian’s story that is graphic I recommend skipping if your kid is ten/eleven or younger. Despite the scary stuff, this book is so good! Even though some of Julian’s part is kind of scary it is also heartwarming because (spoiler alert!) he feels remorse for what he’s done and apologizes to Auggie :) makes me cry every time. If you loved Wonder you will love this just remember it is more mature and graphic.

Amazing follow up to Wonder, but scary Holocaust scenes

Fantastic book that expands upon characters in Wonder, however I was taken by surprise by the detailed description of a young Jewish girl surviving the Holocaust and others not being as lucky. I am Jewish and plan to educate my daughter on the horrors of the Holocaust when it’s age appropriate. Unfortunately we had to fast forward through the vignette about the Holocaust because it would have been terrifying for my 8 year old. I look forward to revisiting this book when she is 11.
