Wonder by R.J. Palacio
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. The book begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman
Readers will laugh out loud as they meet funny, loveable, and honest characters beginning with protagonist and recent widow Lillian, an illustrator, and mother of two young daughters (who sometimes steal the show). When she participates in a community gardening class to inform a career assignment, she learns that to confront her grief she’ll have to give love a second chance. Garners star reviews from critics and teaches readers about love and loss AND gardening!
