I originally thought this was a follow on to Wonder. However it is not. This book takes place during the events of the first book wonder from 3 different characters point of view. 1) Julian (the bully from wonder) it was great to get a background into Julian life and find out why he acted the way he did. 2) Christopher (auggie oldest friend) this was probably the weaknees out of the 3. I didn't really connect to this character (probably because he not a big character in the first book with him being briefly mentioned), however you find out why he made finds with auggie and the struggles he faced in being his friend. 3) Charollte - has her very own story about he year and you find out her year was just a big struggle as well as Auggie, and you find out her involvement of the events that occurred in wonder.
Overall this was a great read and a must for fans of Wonder. I can't wait to read more
Auggie & Me is a great book, which consists of three parts :
1. The Julian Chapter - I really enjoyed reading this part as it gives you some background story of what his life is like and how in tge end, he becomes a much better person.
2. Pluto - this section is written by Christopher, an old friend of August's It is slightly unrelated to Wonder because it does not really involve Auggie that much but I still thought it was great as I began to understand what it would be like to be Auggies friend.
3. Shingaling - this part is definately my favourite as it is mostly about Charlottes school life and how she delt with her friendship issues. It is the most interseting section of tge three and really makes you wany to read on.
I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoyed wonder!
This book has 3 different parts: The Julian chapter, Pluto, and Shingaling. Overall it is a good addition to wonder but with some not very good bits.
The first part of the book is the Julian chapter. It is the book told through Julians pov, but shortened. The beginning is not very interesting, and it does not really add anything on to the storyline, but there is a very nice ending.
The second part of the book is Pluto. It is about August's best friend, Christopher. This was my least favourite part, as it does not add anything on to the storyline, apart from a little backstory.
The third and last part of the book was Shingaling. It is about Charlotte, a girl who was asked to be kind and to look out for Auggie. This was my favourite part of the book because even though it didn't add anything on to the initial storyline, it had it's own little story which I enjoyed reading. It was about Charlotte and her friends, and even though it was a little rambly at times, it was a good little story.
Overall it was a good buy, some bits were kind of boring, but if you are looking for more Wonder, go for this.
It may have been written for ‘kids’ but it’s still a good read at 55! I read this straight after ‘Wonder’ and it provides an excellent insight into the lives and backgrounds of some of the supporting characters from the original book. Because it is an easy read, I finished it in one session but that’s okay: I just need to download another book!
After I read wonder one of my friends told me about this book so I figured I would give it a try. So I did and when I started I could not stop, I loved the story line and the meaning of it I think that this book is perfect and so sweet I love in so much that I am going to suggest this book to all my friends because I fell every one would get a chance to read this book.
Great book. My 7 and 9 year olds loved reading Wonder with me in the evenings and love to hear the other characters' points of view in this one! This one needs a bit of parental guide though as it includes Nazis ethnic cleansing (although with a child-friendly approach) still harsh subject!
