Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories, by R J Palacio
Auggie and Me: This is the second book written by R. J. Palacio after ‘Wonder’. For those of you who haven’t read her earlier book, it talks about the difficulties in the life of a boy named Auggie Pullman who has a physically deformed face and bad health. ‘Auggie and Me’, is related to Wonder, but it doesn’t talk about Auggie. It talks about the people in Auggie’s life. These two books made me read ‘The curious incident of the dog in the night time’, as all three talk about boys who have some problems with social interaction but are extremely talented and unique when you get to know them. It is like their backstory, sharing a little bit of what it was like before they met Auggie, and their experience with him. There are three stories in it – one from Julian’s perspective (a boy who bullied Auggie), Christopher (Auggie’s earlier friend) and Charlotte (a girl who is kind to Auggie).
