Book Trailer: The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story by R. J. Palacio

R.J. Palacio's first novel, Wonder, has spent 76 weeks so far on the NYT Bestseller list. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid - but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. But readers never heard from the bully, Julian.

Palacio's new e-book (available for borrowing in Overdrive via live-brary) The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story is told in just 84 pages, all belonging to Julian, the bully that everyone hated for his mean treatment of Auggie. So far, readers on Amazon and Goodreads are streaming in with nothing but praise for The Julian Chapter, calling it a must read. So charge up your device and download a copy today. Then come back and let us know - what did you think about Julian's version? Is it possible to like him after all?
