    This was so thought provoking, emotional, funny, sad, and beautiful I ll write a full review later, but trust me, this is a story you ll want to read I received an arc of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Magdalena has had a hell of a life And so has her son This book chronicles not only his life but hers as well This book takes you on a journey through surgeries, hospital stays, near death experiences, the fears of parents with disabled children, the resilience of disabled children, ableism, cancer, and so much Magdalena is so real and raw in this book, it would be difficult to not feel exactly how she s feeling I laughed, I cried, I got angry, and I felt triumphant This is not an easy book to read, probably even harder to write, but this is a must read book.

    This is a great companion to Wonder I liked the story of Nathanial and his family I was very happy to hear they are all doing so well I am hoping there will be pictures of the family in the book Reading the eBook did not have any I felt there was a lot of unnecessary jumping around in the timeline Magda would be talking about present day and then jump to when she and Russell had first met I can sort of see it as a useful way to tell the story but it happened so much that it got annoying, in my opinion Overall though, I did enjoy the story.

    I found this book fascinating I liked that there were bits told from Nathaniel s perspective, but that most of the text comes from his mother We often hear stories of people with unique experiences from their own viewpoint, but we don t often hear very much about the family members and how they are affected Magdalena Newman is inspirational She is very honest about her feelings throughout the book not only does she talk about how wonderful her son is, but she shared how some of her own experiences weren t always good Many people wouldn t like to admit that they were scared or freaked out upon embarking on a journey such as hers, but she tells us about her own issues as well as those of her son.

    Magda and her husband were caught by complete surprise when their first child was born with a serious case of Treacher Collins syndrome The family learns to live life as a family with a medically fragile child Many people n their lives are helpful, while a few are hateful.Add in some serious medical problems for Magda, and there is a lot for the family to cope with The publication of the book Wonder by R J Palacio opens up new connections and new understanding of their sons s challenges.And their son Nathaniel is as gutsy and confident as they come
