Wonder. Each part of the book written by R.J. Palacio is told from the perspective of a different character. We love the character Summer, because of the way she respects and has fun with August.
At the start of each part of the book is a quote. This quote is from Christina Aguilera's song "Beautiful". We have enjoyed listening to the song before and after reading this part of the book. It makes us think about respecting others. It is as August would say, "cool beans".
