A Man Walks On To a Pitch

Stories from a Life in Football



A brand-new story about friendship and kindness from the world of WONDER.

WONDER told the story of August Pullman: an ordinary kid with an extraordinary face, whose first year at school changed the lives and the perspectives of everyone around him.

SHINGALING looks at that year through the eyes of Auggie's classmate, Charlotte: smart, kind, and desperate for acceptance from the popular crowd. Thought-provoking, surprising, poignant and heartwarming, this is a must-read for the thousands of readers who loved WONDER.
