Cover: 'Pluto'

Staff Review: "Pluto" by R. J. Palacio


This is another fantastic addition to the "Wonder" story, told from the viewpoint of Chris, the childhood best friend of August Pullman. Truly heartwarming, this short story adds another layer to the wonderful story surrounding a severely disfigured boy named August. Chris, the boy who grew up beside August, faced his own set of challenges being best friends with a boy who had facial disfigurements. But Chris learned so many invaluable lessons because of this, and he shines in this short story. A highly recommended read, alongside "The Julian Chapters", to complete the amazing story of August Pullman.
