At the beginning of Wonder, we learn about August, a boy who has just started school. He meets Jack Will, Charlotte, and Julian before school starts. He then meets Summer, who later becomes one of his friends.
Are you okay?
Julian dislikes August, and calls him names. He tries to do that in front of Jack, and Jack ends up punching him. When Jack returns to school, he finds that most of the grade is against both August and him.
During the field trip to the nature reserve, August gets made fun of by 7th graders. Jack tries to get him out of the situation, and Miles, Amos, and Henry protect him.
Miles and Amos tell their friends what had happened, and the news gets around quickly. Everyone asked him if he was okay after the incident, and August starts to get treated differently.
August wins an award at his graduation, and everyone urges for him to go on stage and cheer for him. People then take group photos with him, and are no longer afraid of August.
