  3. I think that Via Feel's like August is the favorite, or is more important then her. Just because he has the looks, doesn't mean he needs more attention, love or help. Via need's All thouse things as well.

  4. That at the moment the world revolves around Ageist but he can't help with that because his parents think that he is more important than Olivia But his parents can't really help that. Olivia is like a ticking time bomb ready to explode.

    1. Yes. But remember Via was her Gran's favourite. But now that Gran passed away, she must feel left out.

  5. I think that Via is now feeling like she has held in the emotion in for too long and she wants to do something with it, but doesn't know how. Because she has been like the goodie-goodie for years and she wants to let it out and do something that she wants to do.

  6. I really love this book. I feel bad for August but I think that he should tell everyone how he feels. Via sounds cool, but I feel bad for Via because she does not get treated like a 15 year old.

  7. I think that they should be there for both of them not just one

  8. I think that they should give August and Via the same amount of attention so one of them doesn't feel left out.

  11. maybe she thinks that her mum pays a lot more attention to august then her cause of the disfigurement

  12. In my opinion Via should be more included rather then being left out, August needs to learn to take care of himself.

  13. This book is very good. August was born with a cleft palate, and he starts going to school. Julian, in everyone's opinion is a bully. But I think that maybe he has a relative with a cleft palate and his way of dealing with the stares and the insults is using them against August. I certainly know how Via feels. I think that they need to teach August to do things by himself, so that when his parents go he will know what to do. Via feels like she is not cared about, because everyone is always worrying about August. This is certainly a life changing book.

  16. I think that Via sometimes feels like she is being pushed away by her parents because they are always looking after August and not her,
    I also think that August just wants to be normal because everyone looks at him because he is different to everyone else.
    I also think that their parents are just worried and don't want to leave Via out but sometimes they have to to look after august because he is always feeling down.

  17. As a teenager Via will need help because she is a growing adult and is now in high school so help can be needed and it's like she is not there Auggie is the one who gets all the attention but when she stayed at grans she was free to express her feelings but now gran is not on this earth anymore Via is now having trouble to express so she has all these feelings that she wants to get out but she has to hold them inside so that is hard to not burst out saying it so we can tell she is upset

  18. I think that it's really important that we see other peoples views and that the author has been really smart by doing that!

  19. August should learn how to control his body so when he gets older he will not have his mum to look after him.

  20. As Via is growing up she needs someone to talk to but since her gran had passed away she had no one to talk to and via's friends are changing
    Via wondered what her mother was doing outside Auggie's door.

  21. I need to catch up but what I have read so far is amazing. I think that Auggie such a cool person and I really want a friend like him but I think that Via feels left out because Auggie gets the attention.

  22. I think that jack knows what he is doing and that he is only his friend because he was told to.

    1. I now think that jack is nice but he only said that to stay friends with all the other people at the school, but he was a bit mean when he said that he did not care that he had left him but I think that he was just mad and sad about it all. To be honest I did something like that once but not as bad I was just sad that one of my friends had picked all of her friends but me and I did not want to talk to her. That is how I think jack is, so like me when I did not want to talk to my friend.
