Palacio makes her graphic novel debut with an unforgettable story of the power of kindness and unrelenting courage in a time of war. I was captivated by White Bird.

Palacio's bestselling collection of stories Auggie & Me, which expands on characters in Wonder, readers were introduced to Julian's grandmother, Grandmere.

As Grandmere tells Julian, It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything.
