Summary
Inspired by her blockbuster phenomenon Wonder, R. J. Palacio presents an unforgettable story of the power of kindness and unrelenting courage in a time of war. In R. J. Palacio's bestselling collection of stories Auggie & Me, which expands on characters in Wonder, audiences were introduced to Julian's grandmother, Grandmère. Here, Palacio presents Grandmère's heartrending story: how she, a young Jewish girl, was hidden by a family in a Nazi-occupied French village during World War II; how the boy she and her classmates once shunned became her savior and best friend. Sara's harrowing experience movingly demonstrates the power of kindness to change hearts, build bridges, and even save lives. As Grandmère tells Julian, "It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything." With poignant symbolism that brings Sara's story out of the past and cements it firmly in this moment in history, White Bird is sure to captivate anyone who was moved by the book Wonder or the blockbuster movie adaptation and its message.This full-cast audio adaptation of White Bird transforms the graphic novel into a truly original audio performance.This audiobook includes a PDF of the Glossary, Suggested Reading List, Organizations and Resources, and Bibliography.Audio Narrators:Grandmère, read by Hillary Huber Julian and Paul, read by Robbie Daymond Sara Blum, read by Emily Ellet Maquisard and Monsier Lefluer, read by Graham Halstead Mademoiselle Petitjean, read by Lauren Ezzo Jean Paul, read by Sean Patrick Hopkins Max, Jerome, and Rabbi Bernstein, read by Robert Fass Julien, read by Michael Crouch Nazi Soldier, read by Tristan Morris Pastor Luc, read by Adam Alexi-Malle Vincent and a Nazi Soldier, read by P.J.
