This heartrending survival story offers the background and history of one of the most compelling characters from the bestselling book Wonder. Grandmère's harrowing experience as a young girl in an occupied country movingly demonstrates the power of kindness to change hearts, build bridges, and even save lives. As Grandmère tells her grandson, "It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything."
