The Wonder

The Wonder - Emma Donoghue 4.5 stars

Wow, this book! I really didn't know what the outcome was going to be. I was so wrapped up in the girl's reasoning and actions. I thought any moment something would happen to change the direction of the story. It's historical, and most of it is just a nurse and a little girl talking or thoughts from the nurse's head, but I was really on edge to find out the girl's fate. I wanted to shake some sense into everyone. Each time the nurse discovered new information in connection to the girl's current state, I felt shock. This isn't an action book at all, so I can see how some may not find it interesting, but I think the writing is excellent. It's a unique read that pulled my heart strings.
