Gianna Douglas She wrote this book to teach everyone who reads it a lesson. She wanted everyone to know how being the odd one felt. She wrote it like she did because she wanted everyone to know how the others felt about Auggie. And that sometimes what you say doesn't seem like a big deal but to the others it might be. I got that because when Via was intoducing Justint to Auggie she left out a few things, then the book changed to Auggie and he said the things that Via left out.
