Despite my super mixed feelings on [b:Wonder|11387515|Wonder|R.J. Palacio|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1309285027s/11387515.jpg|16319487], Auggie really stuck with me, so when I saw that these novellas were available from the library, I decided to get some closure on Auggie's story. The Julian Chapter immediately took me back to my strongly positive feelings about Wonder: the way in which RJ Palacio captures the nuance of bullies. Not of bullying, but of bullies as people. The way that a ten year old can seriously think "Aw, shucks, but I didn't mean anything by it" as a defense to even terrible actions, which seems unfathomable to most adults. I liked the way that fear informed a lot of Julian's actions, and I liked how his parents were well-intentioned but contributory.

As the narrative of the books shifts away from Auggie and the events in Wonder, they lose a sense of having a center of gravity and become very light and fluffy: The Shingaling is a cute little story about Charlotte learning how to make friends across the social divides, which does really capture a tween girl social dynamic, but is more shallow. And then finally, Pluto is basically a plutoid: the shape is a little irregular with story parts sticking out -- Christopher used to be Auggie's best friend and there are lumps of flashbacks that don't add much, to the small little nugget of story about Christopher's band friends.

This is three short stories, each from a different child’s POV. “Wonder”, of course, is the main book from Auggie’s perspective, and these are three other kids who came into contact with Auggie in some way. Two of these children (Charlotte and Julian) are in the 5th grade when Auggie Pullman comes to their school. Auggie has a facial deformity, and it’s extreme.

Chris was a friend of Auggie’s since they were babies, but moved away a few years before the events of Auggie’s current story. But they did stay in touch, so Chris’s story follows him on a bad day at school, in addition to flashing back to memories of Auggie, then Auggie is brought in to Chris’s current day.

Charlotte and Julian (and one other kid, Jack) are asked to welcome Auggie to the school. Charlotte is nice enough to Auggie, but doesn’t consider him a friend, and Julian just bullies Auggie (and turns others at the school against him).

I’ve read “The Julian Chapter” before but it’s been a long time, so I decided to reread it, in addition to the other two. I liked it the least of the three, likely because Julian (despite this one being from his POV) is a little s**t (though I did like his grandmother’s story). I’m giving it (this time around) 3.5 stars (good). On checking back, I am in agreement with the first time I read this.

The other two, I thought were really good. I really enjoyed Chris’s story and it probably had the most of Auggie in it. I also really liked Charlotte’s story, but it had the least of Auggie. It followed her as her best friend ditched her to hang out with the popular girls; Charlotte herself then got a part in a big dance performance at school with two other girls. ( )

Just when a reader might want to know more.....there are three short stories about people involved in Auggie's life.

Julian the bully
Christopher the childhood friend
Charlotte the fellow classmate

Each story gave an insight into why they were the way they were with Auggie. For good and for ill. Some stories I preferred more than others. I mean, learning about Julian's grandmother hiding out during WWII (the premise of the graphic novel "White Bird") was incredible. And by golly, I really hated his mother.

The other two stories I was more meh with. Not that I didn't love them but they just weren't a favorite. S ( )

This is the companion book to Wonder. Wonder is about Auggie, a middle schooler with a face deformity, who is going to a new school, Beecher Prep for the first time. He meets those who accept him and those who bully him. The companion book takes a look at three of the characters and their relationship to Auggie. A major theme is friendship. The first section is Julian, the bully. Julian spent the summer with his grandmother who tells him a story of growing up in France during World War II. Through the story Julian realizes how he was wrong in his treatment of Auggie and he feels remorse. The second story is about Auggie’s best friend, Chris. Chris lives in another city and Auggie and he are not together as much as they used to be. The become closer again while doing homework and remembering past times. The third story is about Charlotte, who was Auggie’s welcome buddy when he first came to the school. Charlotte has lost her best friend to another more popular group of girls. Charlotte is chosen to be in a dance for Beecher Prep, that includes one of the more popular girls and they become friends. This is a great book for kids and adults alike. ( )

Well, this is are the stories of three characters that know and interact with Auggie Pulman. Those are the stories of Jullian, Chris & Charlotte.
Well, I liked the Jullian & Chris' stories and a little lesser Charlotte's. Jullian's story is about him and his interaction with Auggie; you learn why he didn't go to the class field trip and why he changed school. I liked his grandmother's character a lot, Maybe because I miss my own grandmothers, but for sure, she is a character that shows Jullian that people should be handled as you expect them to handle you the same way. I love the grandmother's back story as well. (5 stars)
Chris's or Christopher's story is also good because of the interaction we have between Chris & Auggie. You see how the friendship changes, but the bond is strong between those kids I really liked. Even the story is taking in Chris's school day; it also flashes back to old stories between Chris & Auggie. (5 stars)
Charlotte's story is something different. It doesn't have much interaction between Charlotte & Auggie; it is about Charlotte and her friendship with Summer Ximena. How she interacts with all the groups and how she knows with each group she has to act. She always neutral on the class conflicts, and she doesn't want to take part. Well was the least favorite story of the book. Even though I was not too fond of the story, I like the friendship bonds between Charlotte, Summer, and Ximena. (3 stars)
Well, the correct start points for this book is 4.333333333 ( )

There’s no rule book that tells you how to act in every given situation in life, you know? So what I always say is that it’s always better to err on the side of kindness. That’s the secret. If you don’t know what to do, just be kind. You can’t go wrong.
