Transcript of Wonder by: R.J. Palacio

People aren't always who they say they are.
The theme, people aren't always who they say they are, is a valid life lesson learned by August throughout his school year
Universal Theme
The universal theme for the book Wonder is, don't judge a book by its cover. Even though this theme is very cliche, it has an important meaning. Many of the people at Augusts middle school immediately judged him because of his facial deformity and would not even get near him. They judged him by his outer appearance instead of by his inner qualities. This happens ALOT in schools today. Even though none of us have what August has, we still judge each other on the way we present ourselves. Next time your in the hallway, dont judge a person by the way they look; instead, go and make a new friend.

People aren't always who they say they are.
The theme, people aren't always who they say they are, is shown on page 77 when August is overhearing a conversation between Jack Wll, "supposedly" his best friend, and Jullian, August's main bully. (Jack talking) " I cant imagine looking in the mirror every day and seeing myself like that. it would be too awful. And getting stared at all the time." (Jullian talking), "Then why do you hang out with him so much?" asked Darth Sidious. "I don't know," answered the mummy, (Jack). "Mr. Tushman asked me to hang out with him at the beginning of the year, and he must have told all the teachers to put us next to each other in all our classes, or something." (August POV) The mummy shrugged. I new the shrug, of course. I knew the voice. I knew I wanted to run out of the class right then and there." By hearing this conversation between Jullian and Jack Will, August realized that Jack wasn't the kind and friendly person that he thought he was at the beginning of the year.
At the beginning of the novel, Amos, Miles, and Henry were bullies to August. They all followed with whatever mean thing Jullian did to August .They would talk about him, call him names, and leave cruel notes in his locker. But later on in the book, Amos, Miles, and Henry realized that August was a pretty cool kid, after they had a dangerous encounter with a group of 7th graders on their camping trip, as it says on page 270. (Augusts POV) "Amos looked at me and nodded. "It was cool how you stood your ground, little dude," he said high-fiving me. "Yeah, Auggie," said Miles, high-fiving me, too. "You were like, 'We're littler than you guys'..." "i didn't know what to say!" I laughed. "Very cool," said Henry, and he high-fived me, too." When they got back to the camp grounds, August could see the change in Amos, Miles, and Henry's attitudes towards him, as said on page 273 and 274. "Amos, Miles, and Henry brought me and Jack over to where we'd been sitting before, with Summer and Maya and Reid, and then they went and sat where they had been sitting before. In a way, everything was exactly as we had left it. The sky was the same. The movie was the same. Everyone's faces were the same. Mine was the same. But something was different. Something had changed between us."
