This year, we had the privilege of hosting a visit with author R. J. Palacio, who stopped by for a visit to chat about her first book, Wonder! Wonder touched us and made us tear up when we read it - it's such a human book that really resonates with you even after you're done reading it. After we finished it, we knew that we'd be hearing lots of great things for a long time afterwards, because it just stays with you.
Which brings us to some very exciting news! R. J. is in the running to be elected as Time for Kids Person of the Year, which is a huge honor and recognition! Congratulations, R. J! Time for Kids also previously interviewed her about Wonder, which you can read here.
R. J. is running against some very stiff competition! She's facing people like Michael Phelps, the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team, and One Direction - just to name a few! Help us out by reading R. J's profile and then go vote for her! She could win Person of the Year with your help! Remember, you need to vote before January 1st, so head over!
If you're curious about Wonder, have never read it but want to, we've linked you to R.J's Q&A with us, as well as her visit board! You can also read the Buzz Blogger Review here to see what you think!
Just click on the book cover to be taken to Wonder's book page, where you can watch the book trailer, or add it to your RB bookshelf!
