Jack Will

We're all on Jack Will's part.  Jack is a hard one to figure out!  What is the real truth about him?  Is he really Auggie's friend?  What are you inferring about Jack?   Why did he say what he did to Julian when he didn't realize Auggie was listening?  How would you compare and contrast Summer and Jack? 

Summer's hint:

BLEEDING SCREAM!

  1. I have 2 comments. The first is that I hated when Auggie overheard what Jack said to Julian. I could just imagine how much it hurt to hear his "friend" say those awful things. I could feel Auggie's heart breaking.

    My second comment is a little off-topic. I wanted to tell you I started reading WONDER to my students yesterday and I even started my very first blog. You are an inspiration!!! When I read "How I Came to Life" my students saw me cry for the first time, although I'm sure not the last! I think they love the story already.

  2. I love the description "I could feel Auggie's heart breaking." That's exactly how we all felt when reading that scene! I'm excited that you're sharing WONDER with your students, and I love that you're starting your own blog. Let us know how it goes!

  3. This is Annie. I think Auggie felt like he was being used. I think Jack said those things about Auggie because of peer pressure. He wanted to be like everyone else. I felt sad when Jack said that about Auggie. I would be upset if I heard my friend say something like that about me.

    1. Annie - Peer pressure is a powerful thing. Jack seems like he's trying to figure out who he really is. It's interesting going on that journey of self-discovery with him. He's not a perfect character, but he seems real. Most people make mistakes. The important thing is to learn from them! Thanks for commenting, Annie!

    1. Garrett,
      I'm glad you got a chance to express your feelings here on the blog. That was SOOOO hard for me to read aloud. Crying in front of a class is uncomfortable, but I could feel everyone feeling the same emotions as me, so that made it easier. I've lost pets, too. I think that's why I was emotional. It's a terrible feeling. Poor Auggie - especially since Daisy loved him unconditionally and didn't care about his face.
