In this sequel to Wonder, R.J. Palacio provides "an expansion of Auggie's world" through the eyes of three different characters, giving the readers three unique perspectives on Auggie. The first story is Julian's, the bully in Wonder. It offers insight into why Julian treated Auggie the way he did. It doesn't excuse his behavior, but it gives the reader hope that Julian has a chance of learning from his past and perhaps will ultimately be a better person. The next story is told from the point of view of Christopher, Auggie's long-time best friend. It tells the story of their friendship starting from when they were babies. Christopher doesn't realize how different Auggie is until other children react adversely to Auggie's appearance. He struggles with staying Auggie's friend while his other friends ostracize Auggie. The last story is told from Charlotte's point of view. Charlotte is one of three students asked to be Auggie's "welcome buddy" when Auggie first arrives at Beecher Prep. Charlotte herself struggles with wanting to fit in with the popular crowd and remaining neutral in the "boys' war." She discovers a lot about herself and friendship in the process.

my 9year old loves reading this book
Did you take my advice...
Did you take my advice and read Wonder, the story that paved the way to this book- that's NOT a sequel? Well if not, you should do so now because you'll want to read this one too! This time, the POV's come from three characters who played a piece in Wonder. When you read this, you'll be just as affected as with the first book. As I stated, this is not a sequel book. This book is about three children, from Wonder and how they were affected by the special boy that made a difference at Beecher Prep. Julian, the bully, Christopher and Charlotte are the tellers of the tale. Honestly, Auggie was barely in this book and that's what was off yet still quite nice. The Julian Chapter brought me to tears... Oh the story Grandmère in France when the German's arrived; I knew who Tourteau was. The retelling was beautiful. There was a precious lesson there. Pluto was unbelievable. At first I thought Christopher was a horrible friend and son, but his lesson was pleasant and easily YA relatable concerning appreciation and love. Then Shingling, told by Charlotte was all about social awkwardness, consideration and kindness. None of the tales were about August, but because he was in their lives, you got to see how he had some sort of influence. It just goes to show that everyday, someone can have some sort of affect on your life. This book tied so many people's lives together- friends or not. It was a fun read but less emotional. I cared but wasn't affected. So do yourself a favor and get to the nearest bookstore or library, or Kindle (sorry, I'm biased concerning ereaders) and purchase this book and Wonder by R. J. Palacio. You will not be sorry, totally entertained and happy you listened tome. You'll say, "You know what Alyssa? You were so right!" I know...
