One Book, One Unami

Summer Reading 2013

What does "One Book, One Unami" mean?

This summer, the entire Unami community will share a common experience by joining together and reading, Wonder by R.J. Palacio. All incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th graders will read Wonder as one of the two required summer readings. For the second book, students may read a title of their own choice.


During the 2013-2014 school year, there will be school wide activities that connect with this extraordinary book! In fact, we think it is such a great book that we encourage our Unami parents and families to join us and read it as well!

What is Wonder about?

Wonder by R.J. Palacio, is centered on the character of Auggie Pullman. Auggie was born with an incredible number of birth defects including shocking facial deformities. Until now, Auggie has not been able to attend school. With his entrance into school come new challenges. You will see these challenges not only through Auggie's eyes; but through the perspective of some of his peers, his high school age sister, and two of her friends.
