Wonder by R.J. Palacio
How did she get her inspiration
She got her inspiration when she was at a ice-cream shop with her two sons, then saw a child that had something wrong with her face. Her younger son was scared and she was afraid that the tears will make the child sad so she took her sons and left the scene.
what she said after the scene
"I was really angry at myself afterwards for the way I had responded,” she added “What I should have done is simply turned to the little girl and started up a conversation and shown my kids that there was nothing to be afraid of. But instead what I ended up doing was leaving the scene so quickly that I missed that opportunity to turn the situation into a great teaching moment for my kids. And that got me thinking a lot about what it must be like to ... have to face a world every day that doesn't know how to face you back."
