He's gotten used to the staring and screaming of the people around him, but is still nervous. August makes a friend, Jack, but then he soon turns on him. The cool tough kid in school, Julian, isn't very excited about the arrival of August. Julian soon starts leaving mean notes in Auggie's locker. Later in the school year, people start warming up to to August. People then laugh at his jokes and want to hang out with him.
