For fans of Wonder!

Review by Ally

If you like the books Wonder and One for the Murphys, then this is the kind of book for you. It's about a boy named Will who faces a lot of challenges in his life. Then he comes down to a decision: betray his friend who may not have so long left or step out of his comfort zone to make his friend’s dreams come true. What will he choose?

AMAZING!

Review by Bookworm828

This book is about a boy named Will that feels shy because he's bullied about his funny looking chin. He visits someone in the hospital named RJ and they start to create a friendship. He has a bucket list he shares with Will and tells him to do everything on it for him. Even though the ending is a little sad, It's an AMAZING book that you can't put down.
