Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
Wonderstruck is a book about two people who live 50 years apart and share a common quality. Ben and Rose are both deaf. Ben's story takes place in the present and Rose's story takes place 50 years prior. But, they both have a very strong common bond. Ben who lives with his aunt and uncle in Minnesota finds himself one day running away to travel to New York to find the father he has never met. What Ben finds is a grand adventure in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and finds a lady named Rose who shares her past with him. This is a beautiful tale told in words and pictures.
