For everyone who grew up loving R.J. Palacio’s Wonder comes a hilarious, heartbreaking, and magical YA debut about what it means to accept the body you’re given.
Morgan was born with a hole in her middle: a perfectly smooth, sealed, fist-sized chunk of nothing near her belly button. At 16, she’s tired of keeping her physical abnormality a secret. One night, after a lifetime of hiding behind lumpy sweaters and a smart mouth, she decides to bare all.
At first, she feels liberated. But the fallout is more than she bargained for. A few photos snowball into a media frenzy, and suddenly she is desperate to get back to her own strange version of normal.
But between hospital visits, Internet celebrity, and a disintegrating relationship with her best (and only) friend, normal is slipping further and further away. Then a new doctor appears with a boy who may be both Morgan’s cure and her destiny.
What happens when you meet the person who is – literally – your perfect match? And is being whole really all it’s cracked up to be?
