I read the book “Wonder” written by R.J. Palacio. This book is the first book I read this year.
The protagonist, August looks different to other people. He begins to go to a normal school. This book gives many important messages on different topics such as friendship, family, and sickness.
The central theme for this book is to act friendly with anyone including people with handicapped people.
The symbols in this book are Jack, Summer, Julian, and Olivia. Jack and Summer both symbolizes friendship. Julian symbolizes enmity. Olivia symbolizes love.
This book can be impressed. There were different kinds of events that can be divided into various themes. For example, bullying, friendship, and love. I think that people who read this book will see people, and things from different perspectives. This book doesn’t tell the exact face of August, but we can tell that he looks really ill by how he describes himself. It made me think how August felt during the time he was at school, and how we felt being with his friends/people that hate him. I felt really sad by thinking how people with sickness can be seen from normal people in bad ways. The author made me feel this way by having different characters in different relationships with the main character. He also wrote chapters with different perspectives by writing some chapters with the progatonist being the characters other than August.
