Try not to take the DNF as a symbol that I //didn’t// enjoying the book. It was more of just terrible planning on my little brother’s part (we had to send it back to the library ;-;).

I had read Wonder about a year ago and was greatly surprised by its impact on me. Not personally knowing or having met anyone with a similar condition, the majority of the struggles Auggie faced were very foreign to me.

R.J. Palacio is the author of ‘Wonder’, a well know middle-grade book about a boy who was born with a facial disorder requiring several surgeries which still left him very much different looking from other children. He wishes to start public school and his journey begins.
Augie & Me takes a look at the individual secondary characters and there reasons for their actions in ‘Wonder’.
Not a sequel, however, a great addition that helps the reader understand their connection and importance to not only

“If we spend too much time looking backward, we can’t see where we are going!”

Wonder was just amazing and I'm so so glad for those three additional chapters/stories. R. J. Palacio is a gemstone, honestly.

Julian: Ah man he was such a dick. But at least his brain did that thing were it started thinking and comprehending and understanding how wrong his actions had been. It's not a big surprise though, seeing how spoiled and arrogant his parents behave. Which is why I'm glad that his grandmother had

Just can't get enough of this world! Three novellas covering three characters from Wonder; the first story is narrated by Justin and is a masterclass in first person thoughts and narration of a bully. It's not too harsh, and neither is it apologetic, it just provides a very well thought out rationale and background to why Justin had so much issue with Auggie; there's also some WONDER-ful scenes with one of his relatives. 9.5 out of 12

4 out of 5 stars! ⭐️ I really loved this book. I have to say my favourite story was the one from Julian! Honestly, I would have never expected that. It really touched me profoundly. 😭

So here is what the children's novel is about: Auggie & Me gives readers a special look at Auggie’s world through three new points of view. These stories are an extra peek at Auggie before he started at Beecher Prep and during his first year there. Readers get to see him through the eyes of Julian, the bully; Ch

“I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives.”

This book is the companion novel to Wonder. If you haven't heard about Wonder, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? SERIOUSLY! Anyway, it is a beautiful story that I believe everyone or almost everyone should read. I read it with my class two years ago and I enjoyed it so much. But if you have read Wonder, this book is small novellas of different people in Wonder and how their lives were

'Auggie & Me' is told from the perspective of three more characters. Julian the bully (The Julian Chapter), Christopher the best friend (Pluto), and Charlotte the classmate (Shingaling). The book was not as great as Wonder but that is a hard book to live up too. My favourite part was probably Julian's story because it tells us how there is good in everything.

My goal was to read all the Wonder books before going and seeing the movie!

The Julian Chapter:
I read Wonder about two years ago, so when I found out that there were short stories that went with the book I had to read them. I was very impressed by the Julian chapter. I didn't think it would be as good as it was. I loved the story his grandmother shared and how it connected to him so well.

This "short book" is about Christopher, who was Auggie's best friend from the time they were babies unti

After having just finished reading and having been suitably impressed with 'Wonder' - I approached this companion piece (it's not a sequel) with some trepidation. The question was whether the three stories contained here (each told from the perspective of a character from 'Wonder' a who weren't really given their 'say' in 'Wonder') really added or even detracted from the original novel?

To take each story individually:

I can see why these stories weren't included in Wonder, but I'm SO glad I read them. It took me a while to get into each story, but the author has an amazing talent of making you fall in love with every character she writes. I was so invested in all of them, it's hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to choose I would probably say Charlotte's, because I think ten year-old Bee could've learned a lot from the lessons in her story. ...more

I really enjoyed this book but I don't think it is necessary to read if you have read wonder. I really loved charlottes story and I liked Julian's but I didn't really enjoy Christopher's.
I'm going to come out with this straight away...IF you didn't enjoy Wonder then you probably shouldn't bother with this novel...IF you enjoyed Wonder and would like to know more about OTHER characters within the book then this may be the novel for you to pick up.

The author blatantly states that there isn't going to be a squeal to Wonder but instead has given us a different opportunity to go into the mind of some other characters that were featured in the book and one not that much.

All of these stories did so much to give you so much background to Wonder, they're so worth a read. Charlotte was such a lovely character and getting to read about what was going on with her was a really eye-opening and relatable look at middle school friendships. Julian's story was interesting too because he isn't a bully in everyone's eyes. I liked his development, but it really made me think about how hard it must be to be a parent sometimes! Loved it! ...more

I was exploring the Walmart book section for the very first time when this book caught my eye and I knew I had to buy it. I loved Wonder so much that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spend a little more time with Auggie Pullman and the people that fill his world.

Since this is a collection of three short stories or supplemental chapters to Wonder, the plot isn’t as tight or compelling, but it is still definitely worth the read.

I was nearly crying the whole time I read this out loud to my kids. This books picks up right where Wonder leaves off, but this time the plot revolves around the complex and tender lives of the other characters in this beautifully crafted universe of characters.

We see how challenging growing up can be. Through the eyes of Julian, Christopher and Charlotte we are reminded to be kind and that friendships and families and school can be hard, but we all make it through somehow.

This is a companion book (consisted of 3 stories) from Wonder - and it's still totally inspiring, beautiful and mesmerizing. We have a chance to see the different point of views from 3 people whose lives intersected with Auggie. There's Julian, the bully, Christopher, the old friend, and Charlotte, the goody two shoes.

While Auggie struggled with his problems and issues in Wonder, these three people also had many things to deal with. Including Julian! Like Palacio said, she didn't try to justify

You may think this is a sequel, or just some extras to add in the Wonder universe. But R.J. Palacio was very clear she will not write a sequel whatsoever. In Auggie & Me, we get three new POV's from three characters from Wonder surrounding the story of August Pullman and what their inside thoughts have said.

It is, once again, very emotional, so powerful, it gives us the reminder to choose kindness, and that's what it was all about, the influence of Choose Kind movement. The three novellas were a

This was so cute!

Auggie and Me had such sweet little novellas! After reading all about Auggie, and then watching him, I was really excited by the novellas for this series. I'm not going to lie, I was hesitant to read about other people but since they were short books I was going to dive into them no matter what.

First off, I loved Julian's part! It was perfectly cute and such a fun one to read. Plus his grandmother was beyond adorable and I wanted more of that and them. Then there's Christopher,

The Julian Chapter
Julian was the only unredeemed character left at the end of Wonder. While he was not the only bully in the situation, he definitely initiated most of the mean stuff done to Auggie. He came up with a game called 'The Plague' in which anyone who comes into physical contact with Auggie has to wash their hands quickly or else they die. He talked about Auggie and made gestures behind his back, sometimes even to his face. He even wrote mean notes and left them in Auggie and Jac

I think I enjoyed AUGGIE & ME more than I did the original WONDER. In this companion book R.J. Palacio explores three minor characters from WONDER, Christopher, Auggie’s childhood friend, Julian the bully and Charlotte, the nice-enough girl who didn’t like the teasing, but never stepped up.

Nothing about Julian is likable or sympathetic and after meeting his parents, readers know why. He doesn’t feel badly for bullying Auggie and sees himself as a victim, until his grandmother shares a story abou

This book has easily made its way into my favorites. It's not like its very thrilling, got lots of suspense or twists. It's just a very heartwarming book, that I found easy to relate too. R. J. Palacio writes about middle school friendships so accurately, its hard for me to sometimes believe that she's an adult, and not a kid like me who goes to school!
The stories she wrote in this book about friendship, self- discovery and valuing the things you have just.... touched my heart.
