Rebecca Caudill 2014 Winner!

caudill2014The winner of the 2014 Rebecca Caudill Award is Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan. He endures the taunting of other students while trying to fit in.

This is one of my favorite books. I’m usually a non-fiction reader but the story of Auggie really moved  me. I would recommend it highly!
