Discussion Questions For Part Two: Via

As you continue to read Wonder by R. J. Palacio, our first MSC Book Club read, here are some questions connected to Part Two to think about.

Part Two – Via

What challenges do you think Via might face being Auggie’s sister?

Auggie’s face is not fully described until quite far on in the story, in Via’s chapter ‘August: Through the Peephole’.  How close was this description to your own mental picture of Auggie?  Did you have a picture of his face in your mind while reading the book?  Did this description alter that picture?

METAPHOR – A metaphor occurs when something is described using a direct comparison without using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’.  Example: Life is a highway.  Via says “August is the Sun.”  What does she mean?
