Auggie And Me Character Analysis

Improved Essays
There is good in everyone or a reason why people or book characters do bad things. A great example for that is Julian, from “Wonder” and “Auggie and Me” by R.J. Palacio. Julian is mean to two other characters. Jack-Will who looks totally normal and to august who has a facial disorder called Craniofacial difference. Julian is two faced, plus he only cares about himself and his posse. But one thing that really gets on peoples nerves is that Julian is sneaky about bullying August and Jack-Will.

Part 1 of 3, my first reason on why Julian is a mean kid is because Julian is two faced. Or in other words Julian is nice in front of adult but mean to other kids. For example, he makes fun of august during the school tour. He says things like

I believe that Julian doesn't know what he is getting himself into by passing mean notes to August and Jack-Will. In the story August keeps stating that teachers and principals know everything, but they didn’t notice Julian sending notes like “Nobody likes you anymore” to Jack-will or “You stink, big cheese, freak, get out of school orc.” I bet I know what your reaction is reader. “What, why would he say those things” That's what I said when I read that part. But that's not the only sneaky thing that he has done. He actually started a boy war at Beecher Prep. He spread this rumor that Jack-Will cracked under the pressure when Jack punched Julian. But thank goodness that this the last and least awful way that he sneaky. He watches what he says and who he is saying it to. Like when he is in front of the principle he makes sure that he is saying good things unlike when he is in talking to august. He is always saying mean things.These connect back to my idea of how Jack is sneaky about what he does to bully August and Jack-Will.

In conclusion, Julian is definitely a mean person. It went from calling August a freak to Julian starting a boy war against Jack-Will. Julian is just a two faced,selfish and sneaky person. If you read Julian's Chapter you will figure out that Julian did actually have a reason for being mean. But don’t think I will say what it is, you reader will have to read Auggie and Me, but you might want to read wonder first so it will make more sense. But think about this reader, “When given the choice between being write and being kind, CHOOSE KIND”- R.J

    “I can fully understand that the public might be confused by our use of the expression, and mistake a book by a Harlem schoolteacher for a six-pack of Coca-Cola.” (Lines 4-6). Clearly Seaver didn’t take Herbert’s letter very seriously, considering he spent his entire second paragraph simply making fun of him. Although, when the second half of the letter came, Seaver started to get more serious about the issue that Herbert had brought to his attention. He then used logos and irony to help Herbert understand that he is just simply overreacting about a minor issue that if anything would hurt the book more than the coke company. “Since the slogan is so closely identified with your product, those who read our ad may as well tend to go out and buy a Coke rather than our book.” (Lines 14-16).…
