Summary

Over one million people have read or listened to and loved Wonder. Now listeners will have a chance to hear from the one of the book's most controversial characters - Julian.

From the very first day Auggie and Julian met in the number-one New York Times best seller Wonder, it was clear they were never going to be friends, with Julian treating Auggie like he had the plague. And while Wonder told Auggie's story through six different viewpoints, Julian's perspective was never shared. Fans could only guess what he was thinking.

Until now. The Julian Chapter will finally reveal the bully's side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption?

Absolutely powerful.

I loved this story, maybe even more than the original. The lessons about humility, remorse, and the human tendency of being afraid and fighting back with anger, were all so important and powerful. For kids who have been bullies this book could be just as important as Wonder was for those who have been bullied. And really, many of us have been a little of both. I didn't realize when I downloaded this that it would be an entire book! What a treat! I also didn't expect ever to like Julian's mom, and yet I empathized her through this story. So, so good! If you liked Wonder, or even if you somehow didn't, read/listen to this one, too. You won't regret it.

Inspiring!

To hear the story told in the perspective of a young child so utterly indifferent to another’s struggle leaves you in awe at first. Then to see how the writer masterfully writes the transformation of that child is inspiring. I listened with my own 10 year old and he smiled at the ending. Very well written, with a beautiful lesson.

Great follow up to Wonder - Julian's perspective

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Julian Chapter?

Julian's realization of his role in the tough year in fifth grade

What about Michael Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

Sounds like the way a KidMin that age group would talk

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt good that Julian admitted his role in the bad school year and attempted to make amends with someone he hated

Any additional comments?

Great book to follow up wonder about finally accepting the differences of Augie and reaching out to him. Inspiring that he grew up and full of seeking forgiveness and forgiving others.
