I have to get something off my chest. It’s been bothering me for quiet awhile now.

I don’t like the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio. I think it’s predictable and.... preachy?

THERE. I SAID IT.

I’m a fifth grade teacher, you’d think I’d be all about it. everyone raaaaaves about it and I just quietly, sneakily roll my eyes. He was homeschooled and then goes to a fancy, private school! There is sooooo much privilege in this book. Yawn. I know the main character deals with a lot. My students didn’t like it either when we read it, most likely because they could tell I hated it. I get it has a good message, but no. No thank.
