Every Story Has A Hundred Different Views

This is a collection of 3 stories from kids who are in the book Wonder. It starts out with the antagonist from the main book, Julian, and tells his story from the fall to his redemption. The story is definitely the strongest of the three. The first half of his story is about his interactions with Auggie from his point of view and why he has such a visceral reaction. It does not excuse his bullying ever, but gives us a starting point on why it happened. The second part of his story is amazing. It may be better than the original book. In this section, Jullian visits his grand-mère in France and she tells him the story of her life, which changes his life. Powerful story. Julian is seen as a real kid with real fears, struggles, and joys. He becomes more than the obnoxious bully from the main book.
The second story is called Pluto and is about Auggie's oldest friend, Christopher. The story is good but after coming from Julian's story, it doesn't pack the same punch. This is the story where Auggie appears most in this collection. The story is good but it's hard to connect with Christopher because he just wasn't around in the main book.
The third story, Shing-A-Ling, is about Charolette, another one of Auggie's welcome buddies. It is about her becoming part of a special dance group and doing a big performance with two very unlikely partners, Ximena and Summer. This story is fun and fast. It is a good place to end on a high note.
If you are a fan of the Wonder story, these three short stories will round out your experience and give you a fuller view of that life is like at Beecher Prep. Well worth the listen.
