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?
