My pick of the week is Wonder, by R.J. Palacio.

This little book surprised me with its well-written characters and authentic dialogue. The story follows August, a 10-year-old boy with a facial disfigurement, during his first year at Beecher Prep Middle School. Its themes include friendship, loyalty, and the power of being kinder than necessary.
