In R. J. Palacio's bestselling collection of stories Auggie & Me, which expands on characters in Wonder, readers were introduced to Julian's grandmother, Grandmère. Here, Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with Grandmère's heartrending story: how she, a young Jewish girl, was hidden by a family in a Nazi-occupied French village during World War II; how the boy she and her classmates once shunned became her savior and best friend.

Sara's harrowing experience movingly demonstrates the power of kindness to change hearts, build bridges, and even save lives. As Grandmère tells Julian, "It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything." With poignant symbolism and gorgeous artwork that brings Sara's story out of the past and cements it firmly in this moment in history, Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with an unforgettable story of the power of kindness and unrelenting courage in a time of war.

Description

"Asked by Julian, Wonder’s bully, to recount the story of Julien, a boy impacted by polio who helped her hide from Nazi soldiers as a child, Grandmère reluctantly agrees. Cruelly teased by schoolmates, Julien becomes Sara’s protector after Nazis invade their progressive school. The two make a sympathetic duo as Sara’s once-charmed life gives way to an existence of survival.... Final panels, which show contemporary Americans protesting family separation at the U.S./Mexico border, tether the story to current events." — Publishers Weekly
