R.J. Palacio is the amazingly talented author of "Wonder". In the acknowledgements she thanks "all the men and women quietly toiling behind the curtain to make books happen". And then my favorite part: "And I know it ain't for the money! It's for love."
That's the best part about writing. It's never about the money. It's purely for the love of telling stories.
If you can't remember the last good book you read for enjoyment, pick this one up. It's full of emotional appeal--plenty of highs and lows that bring out some of the best and worst of humanity. All in all, it's heartwarming, thought provoking, and wonderful. Thank you, R.J. Palacio, for creating a book with so much LOVE and so much HEART!
