Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: R.J. Palacio – Wonder

This precept (a principle to live by), “Don’t be friends with jerks,” comes from the book Wonder. My 10-year-old nephew gave me the book as a Christmas gift. He personally chose it, so it’s written for middle school students.

His mom and I cracked up that I got a reading assignment from a 10-year-old. I knew the inevitable quiz (to make sure I read it) was coming next, so I dove in. Surprisingly (or not), it’s chock full of lessons for adults too.

  1. I also “had” to read Wonder (per my son’s request) – excellent book and I totally agree with your favorite quote. I wish we could get that sentiment out to many more people!
