August's parents want him to start going to school, instead of being home schooled, because they want him to have more social interaction.
August finds out that no one wants to touch him because they are scared of his face.
When Summer sat down with August, it let him know that all people were not going to treat him badly.
Because Auggie did not wear the expected costume,no one realized he was there.
August has a great time walking around school unnoticed because people treat him like a normal student but he becomes ill and has to leave school when he overhears his friend Jack and Julian talking.
After Jack apologizes, their friendship becomes stronger.
August doesn't want to wear them because he is scared of what the kids at school will think but most of them were okay with it.
August has to go on a nature field trip for school, requiring the kids to camp three nights.
August and his friend jack go into the woods, then they run into some seventh graders who made fun of August's appearance.
Auggie is banged up, but he is completely amazed that his classmates stood up for him.
