My favorite Wonder passage:
p.231: "Why is everyone getting up?" I said.

           "It's a standing ovation," said Mom, getting up.

          So I got up and clapped and clapped. I clapped until my hands hurt. For a second, I imagined how cool it would be to be Via and Justin right then, having all these people standing up and cheering for them. I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives.
