In the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio the main character's name is August. ¨My name is August, by the way. I wont describe what I look like¨(Palacio 3).
August has a unique face, he was just born like that. ¨But she says that when she looked down into my tiny mushed-up face...¨(Palacio 7). When August's mom saw him for the first time she saw his mushed-up face and didn't care she just saw the positive of how beautiful his eyes where.
The strongest personality trait of August is bravery. In the beginning of the book he always hid his face, and his parents protected him. ¨Auggie I couldn't stand seeing that thing cover your face anymore¨(Palacio 291). August stop hiding and went to school for the first time. People started and called him names but he made it through not letting it get to him.
In the beginning of the book one character trait of August would be shy. August is going to public school for the first time. "I sort hid behind Mom as I walked"(Palacio 17). August was getting a tour of the school. He didn't want people to see him so he hid, but he was still brave to say yes to going to a public school.
In the middle of the book a character trait of August is unafraid. His school has a trip where they go four hours away and sleepover. ¨Beecher Prep go away for three days...Most kids have sleepovers...Not me¨(Palacio 250). Auggie wouldn't even sleepover his best friends house never mind 4 hours away, with his school. However he wasn't afraid to try new things and go with his school.
At the end of the book August is confident. Going to public school helped him get more confident through all the good and bad times. ¨I stopped letting anyone take pictures of me while ago...Everyone started taking pictures of me...¨(Palacio 70, 307). The beginning of the text evidence is from the beginning of the book when he hated when people took photos of him because of his face. Now he doesn't care. This is also like when he wore the helmet all the time in public, but then stopped wearing it because he doesn't care what people thought of him.
