Hi! My name is August, but everyone calls me Auggie.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio, is about a young boy named Auggie with a facial disformity. He finally starts school after being homeschooled his whole life. He goes through good times and bad during the school year.
Antagonist - Julian Albans
The setting is at New York City in the modern day. A good deal in the book takes place at Auggies new school, Breecher Prep, and his familys townhouse.
Conflict - Character vs. Society
Auggie is a fun loving kid who starts 5th grade. Although he has a face dismormity, he never lets anything bring him down, or at least he acts like it doesnt. Auggie gets bullied a lot at his new school, but does manage to make two friends that would change his life forever.
Julian is the grades bully. Although he doesnt pick on most kids, he certainly picks on Auggie. Wether its starting a rumor, or calling names, Julian always has something to say to Auggie.
Everyone seems to pick on Auggie, even people that dont even know him. Because of this, it gives him a lot of self doubt and causes him to always hide his face underneath his favorite astronant helment.
