did this from multiple perspectives. She showed you how Auggie thought. How he saw himself as normal, even though he didn’t look the stereotypical form of “normal”. Then, how some of his family thought. How they loved Auggie because he was their family, but also because they knew he was more than what his physical appearance suggested. Also, the author tells the story from the point of view of some of Auggie’s classmates. Who, some of which, accept him as a good friend. They aren't his family. They didn't have to say anything to August Pullman. . . . but they did. And that makes all the difference. They didn’t know that Auggie would be a nice person to be around. They knew he looked like the one small pebble in the bottom of a basket of apples and oranges. Very different. Though, they took a chance, and realized that he wasn’t so bad. I love how this book just tells the honest truth. People will not always be treated with the same respect, even though we should be. It is very likely that, there will always be one person to judge you even when others are friendly. It is also very likely that, even when all others doubt you, one person will stand beside you.
