This companion book features conversations between Mr. Browne and Auggie, Julian, Summer, Jack Will, and others, giving readers a special peek at their lives after Wonder ends. Mr. Browne's essays and correspondence are rounded out by a precept for each day of the year—drawn from popular songs to children’s books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His selections celebrate the goodness of human beings, the strength of people’s hearts, and the power of people’s wills.
To others, 12-year-old Molly seems perfect. In order to keep this outward appearance of perfection, she must always have her pencils sharpened just right, have her glass figurines lined up just so, and constantly count by fours in her head. When her mother temporarily moves out to pursue a job far away, Molly’s habits become more extreme and she feels like her life is falling apart. Unfortunately, she’s afraid to get help from anyone — even her family and closest friends.
