Mrs. Abelson's ESL Website

R.J. Palacio is the author of the book, “Wonder”. Investigate her website to learn more about her work and how she came to write this story. Think about times when you may have had similar experiences. Would you like to write a book of your own one day?

Watch the interview with R.J. Palacio posted to the left. We are very fortunate this year, the movie version of “Wonder” comes to theaters on November 17. We have been waiting for this!
