Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories by R.J. Palacio

I had truly loved Wonder, so I was super excited to get to read more into the world of Auggie. This book had a really neat perspective. It was not stories about people who knew Auggie best or who hung out with him most. These stories were not to get to know Auggie better, but to see the affect that Auggie had on others and what he taught them. To do this, the book to looked at the characters that just flit by, but are not part of the main story. This was done perfectly by following Julian, Auggie’s tormentor, Auggie’s childhood friend, and Auggie’s designated welcome buddy who is just neutral in the war. It did a great job and gave a new perspective on all of the characters that were just mentioned in Wonder. It also did a great job illustrating the different parts of bullying, the bystander and the bully. I think the idea behind this was really great too because most the time you read all of these “inspirational” stories, but you never see the affect that they people. These stories are short and sweet. They are just small snippets in the lives of these characters I would recommend it to any fan of Wonder and I would recommend these two books (Wonder and Auggie and Me) to anyone interested in a good story about bullying.
