Wonder de R.J. Palacio
'Wonder' deixou-me triste durante muito tempo enquanto o lia, mas à medida que nos vamos aproximando do fim, o universo torna-se semi-justo para o August, pelo menos na medida em que é possível. Conseguimos ver o personagem principal crescer através dos olhos de várias pessoas que lhe são próximas. É um livro que acaba bem e nos deixa o coração em pleno.
“so doesn't that make the universe a giant lottery, then? you purchase a ticket when you're born. and it's all just random whether you get a good ticket or a bad ticket. it's all just luck. my head swirls on this, but then softer thoughts soothe, like a flatted third on a major chord. no, no, it's not all random, if it really was all random, the universe would abandon us completely. and the universe doesn't. it takes care of its most fragile creations in ways we can't see. like with the parents who adore you blindly. and the big sister who feels guilty for being human over you. and a little gravelly-voiced kid whose friends have left him over you. and even a pink-haired girl who carries your picture in her wallet. maybe it is a lottery, but the universe makes it all even out in the end. the universe takes care of all of its birds.”
― R.J. Palacio, Wonder
