Is dad mad about the hearing aids?
When Via was at camp, she told people she had a deformed brother.
Dad finally told August that he threw out his helmet and August got mad at him for doing that but when dad told August that he just wanted to see his face more, August saw his dad as a caring person.
I threw your helmet out
When August asked his Mom if she had heard about the hearing aids getting lost she said yes. Then he asked her if Dad was mad at him since they cost a lot of money. Mom told him that they didn’t care about money, only that he was okay. After this August realized that his parents were very caring for him.
No, he just cares that you're okay
At the end of the story, everybody gathers around for a group photo. At this point, almost everybody likes August more than they did at the beginning. August started to become less shy and started to become more popular.
