    I've read Wonder a few years ago and it remains one of my favorite books to date. I think every child (middle school & up), parent and teacher should read this book and discuss the important lessons it conveys. Wonder is written with such heart that you can't help but fall in love with Auggie.Auggie & Me isn't a sequel or a prequel, rather, it's written from the pov's of three characters who have encountered Auggie in varying degrees. The Julian Chapter is from the pov of Julian, who in the first book came off as a bully. Pluto is written from the pov of Christopher, Auggie's childhood friend who he lost touch with. And Shingaling is from the pov of Charlotte, who was nice to Auggie but preferred to be in the middle than taking sides.What I love about RJ Palacio's writing is that she is able to create believable characters that readers can relate to. In Auggie & Me we learn more about each character, bringing us into a deeper understanding of their motivations. It reminds us to not be quick to judge a person because we don't really know the reasons behind their actions.The story of Auggie teaches us the importance of compassion, acceptance and friendship in a world that is saturated with the superficial.We need more books like these for our kids.

    Loved the honesty of the characters and the perspective it gives you in dealing with other people. Thankful my boys could listen to this and become more aware of others and the battles we are all fighting inside ourselves.

    Awesome book to read tells background stories super good ?
  • (5/5)
    The best thing about this book is the realistic 5th grade characters, their relationships, inner lives, insecurities, and coping skills or lack thereof. Also, because I met these folks in the book called, “Wonder,” I enjoyed the deeper revelations about who they were as people and what life experiences influenced their assumptions, thinking, actions, and feelings. Anyone who has ever been a fifth grader in a public school will recognize the dynamics between personalities and scenarios. I loved the two books about these kids.

    This was a great book. Definitely don't read it if you haven't read wonder. Personally I think I preferred Wonder to this book, just because it was more heartfelt. Especially liked Shingaling, thought that particular book was the best out of all three.

    Wonder was a book that my sons very much enjoyed - a good read for a fifth grader. Auggie and Me has three short stories. My son and I agree that the first two stories, The Julien Chapter and Pluto, were very good. The third short story was geared more for girls (in our opinion). It was fun to read short stories with my son especially about characters we already knew.

    In this sequel to Wonder, R.J. Palacio provides “an expansion of Auggie’s world” through the eyes of three different characters, giving the readers three unique perspectives on Auggie. The first story is Julian’s, the bully in Wonder. It offers insight into why Julian treated Auggie the way he did. It doesn’t excuse his behavior, but it gives the reader hope that Julian has a chance of learning from his past and perhaps will ultimately be a better person. The next story is told from the point of view of Christopher, Auggie’s long-time best friend. It tells the story of their friendship starting from when they were babies. Christopher doesn’t realize how different Auggie is until other children react adversely to Auggie’s appearance. He struggles with staying Auggie’s friend while his other friends ostracize Auggie.The last story is told from Charlotte’s point of view. Charlotte is one of three students asked to be Auggie’s “welcome buddy” when Auggie first arrives at Beecher Prep. Charlotte herself struggles with wanting to fit in with the popular crowd and remaining neutral in the “boys’ war.” She discovers a lot about herself and friendship in the process.

    This book is a companion book to the author's bestseller Wonder. It contains three short stories (really more like novellas), each narrated by a different character from the Wonder-universe: Julian, who bullied Auggie in Wonder; Christopher, Auggie's first friend; and Charlotte, who was tasked with welcoming Auggie to Beecher Prep. In that way, this book helps to flesh out the original novel even more, with additional perspectives seen. For that reason though, I would not recommend reading this book before reading Wonder.The "problem" with this book was that the narrators are all sort of obnoxious. Julian, of course, falls into the "it was just a joke" knee-jerk response whenever he does anything cruel. A summer spent with his grandmother, a Holocaust survivor, helps him to see the error of his ways. The Holocaust story seemed a bit out of place, considering how it's more intense than the rest of the Wonder stories, but it was interesting and perhaps only a bigger story like that would wake up a bully. Christopher is very snarky towards his mother, but this story was well told, using just one day in Christopher's life to unfold a larger picture. Charlotte has an annoying tick in which she needs to be praised even when it's someone else's turn to be in the limelight. She is, however, the least annoying of the three characters and her story felt the most connected to the original novel, given that many of the events from that book (e.g., "the boy war") are seen again here from another viewpoint.Multiple narrators are used in the audiobook, which helps to give each character life. I did notice, however, that the narrator for Charlotte's story pronounces the middle school director's day as "Tuchman" while all the narrators here and in Wonder said "Tushman" and that she also mispronounces the Frozen character's name as "An-na" rather than "Ahn-na." These were very minor quibbles, however.

    Not exactly a sequel, this is a companion book to the marvelous "Wonder", a teen lit book about a ten-year-old boy, Auggie Pullman, who has severe cranio-facial disfigurements and is entering 5th grade after being home schooled all his life. "Auggie & Me" consists of three novelettes centered around different characters from "Wonder". Auggie only makes a brief phone appearance in the first story, "The Julian Chapter", and barely at all in the other two, although he is a background figure throughout the book.The first story, "The Julian Chapter", is the best, being told through the perspective of Julian, one of the only "villains" from "Wonder". Here we see some explanation for Julian's behavior toward Auggie (although it does not excuse it), and there is remorse and redemption inspired by a beloved grandmother's life story, hidden till now. "Pluto" is told by Auggie's oldest childhood friend, Christopher Blake, who moved away from Auggie's neighborhood three years ago, but finds that Auggie remains a very real presence in his life. The last is told by Charlotte, one of the three originally asked by the director of Auggie's new school to be part of his welcoming committee. This is a wonderfully touching story that centers on the filmy tissue of first impressions and the lasting value of kindness. "Wonder" is a necessary prerequisite to reading this book, but "Auggie & Me" is a marvelous supplement to the stories and characters from that book.

    Did you take my advice and read Wonder, the story that paved the way to this book- that's NOT a sequel? Well if not, you should do so now because you'll want to read this one too! This time, the POV's come from three characters who played a piece in Wonder. When you read this, you'll be just as affected as with the first book. As I stated, this is not a sequel book. This book is about three children, from Wonder and how they were affected by the special boy that made a difference at Beecher Prep. Julian, the bully, Christopher and Charlotte are the tellers of the tale. Honestly, Auggie was barely in this book and that's what was off yet still quite nice. The Julian Chapter brought me to tears... Oh the story Grandmère in France when the German's arrived; I knew who Tourteau was. The retelling was beautiful. There was a precious lesson there. Pluto was unbelievable. At first I thought Christopher was a horrible friend and son, but his lesson was pleasant and easily YA relatable concerning appreciation and love. Then Shingling, told by Charlotte was all about social awkwardness, consideration and kindness. None of the tales were about August, but because he was in their lives, you got to see how he had some sort of influence. It just goes to show that everyday, someone can have some sort of affect on your life. This book tied so many people's lives together- friends or not. It was a fun read but less emotional. I cared but wasn't affected. So do yourself a favor and get to the nearest bookstore or library, or Kindle (sorry, I'm biased concerning ereaders) and purchase this book and Wonder by R. J. Palacio. You will not be sorry, totally entertained and happy you listened tome. You'll say, "You know what Alyssa? You were so right!"I know...
