Last year readers were given a special look at another side of his story with The Julian Chapter, and now they'll get a peek at Auggie's life before Beecher Prep, with an exclusive new short story told entirely from the point of view of Christopher, Auggie's oldest friend.   Christopher was Auggie's best friend from the time they were babies until his family moved away; he was there through all of Auggie's surgeries and heartbreaks, through bad times and good—like Star Wars marathons and dreams of traveling to Pluto together.  Alternating between childhood flashbacks and the present day, an especially bad day for Christopher, Pluto is the story of two boys grown apart learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort....

    Me impresiona la capacidad que tiene R. J. Palacio de escribir desde la cabeza de niños pequeños. Muchos autores lo intentan, pero ella realmente lo logra; hace que las palabras, las actitudes y los pensamientos realmente sean los de chicos intentando entender cómo funciona la amistad, y no las de un adulto que pretende hablar como un niño. En este libro vemos desde la perspectiva de Christopher cómo se ve la vida de Auggie desde fuera y qué tan duro resulta muchas veces ser su amigo. Vemos cómo los niños pequeños pueden ser, a veces, mucho más crueles que los adultos entre ellos, pero también entendemos que para chicos como Christopher, la amistad va mucho más allá de apariencias y del qué dirán. Quizá lo que más me gustó de este libro es que conocemos a Christopher como un chico que cree que tiene que ser fuerte y aparentar que nada lo afecta, cuando en realidad en su vida, como en la de Auggie, están pasando muchas cosas. Lo mejor de R. J. Palacio en El Juego de Christopher es que no eclipsa los problemas de Chris comparándolos con los de Auggie, sino que les da la importancia que se merecen.

    Una historia más sobre el mundo de La lección de August, no tiene mucha relevancia en la historia principal pero como el resto de estas historias es entretenida y siempre es bueno leer un poco más sobre August, me gustó Christopher y su historia pero como digo, no tiene mucha relación y como que sale sobrando, aun así, me gustó.

    Inicie el año con un libro cortito y muy emotivo. #SEAMOSAMABLES. ¿Para qué leer el juego de Christopher?1. Por que si eres fan de la historia de Wonder este titulo te ampliara más la visión de August cuando era más pequeño y sus procesos de operación en el rostro. 2. Conocemos a su amigo de toda la infancia que es Christopher y como este se siente culpable por algo que le pasa a su madre. 3, Vemos el otro lado de las familias, en este caso el divorcio y la manera en que lo ve un niño. 4. La autora en verdad sabe explicarte adecuadamente el pensamiento de un niño y nos mete a los lectores en la cabeza de los problemas que pueden tener los infantes. Desde el hecho de tomar decisiones, la elección de amigos y como enfrentar las consecuencias de sus actos. 5. Nunca pierde la esencia de la autora de ser amable y como cuidar una amistad.

    Very much age appropriate for 8 or older. Easy read, good points about friendships that are thought provoking, and quick paced. Not my favorite by the author but still liked it and would recommend for a followup read to Wonder.

    Aunque no es un relato que aporte mucho a la Lección de August, es un relato bonito, que nos muestra algunas cosas y se tienen algunos flashback de antes de la Lección de August. Christopher al igual que Julian tiene su propia historia para contar. Un bonito relato que nos habla de la amistad, la lealtad y las cosas que son realmente importantes en la vida.

    "Sometimes friendships are hard."Before Beecher Prep and Julian, August was homeschooled and spent a great deal of time with his best friend Christ0pher. As their moms were best friends, these two boys were introduced to each other days after being born. Having grown up around Auggie, Christopher is not put off by his appearance but the older he gets, the more he notices how others are uncomfortable around his friend. He eventually moves further away and finds that sustaining this friendship is going to be more complicated than he expected.What I love of the Wonder series is how deceptively simple they are. 'Pluto' is the third installment. At barely eighty pages long, this brief book gives the reader an insight to Auggie's life before he enrolled in school. As with the two books that preceded it, the main theme of the book is friendship. Chris very much enjoys hanging out with Auggie. They share a love of all things Space related and Star Wars. While Chris is aware that Auggie is different, its not a factor for him. Though it clearly was a problem for the moms that used to befriend Auggie's mom. As soon as they learned of August's condition, most moms st0pped spending time with her. All moms except for Christopher's mom, that is. So the scope of this novel is broad as Palacio deals with adult prejudices as well. I will say that this work did not pack the emotional impact of the other books but delivered the message just as well. After all, as Chris learns, being friends with Auggie is complicated but it is worth it.

    "That's when I realized why they didn't hang out with us anymore. Being friends with Auggie could be hard sometimes."Pluto is yet another novella written by R.J. Palacio as an addition to her book, Wonder. This story is written in the perspective of Christopher, August's friend since they were babies. His character doesn't show up much in the book because he moved to Bridgeport with his family. In this book, R.J. Palacio takes the reader to a day in Christopher's life; in which he had to struggle with his own problems. And we'll also see the struggle he has to go through as August's friend."We would spend hours playing pretend games about missions to deep space, or landing on Pluto. That became our favorite planet to travel to. Pluto was our Tatooine."Christopher and August's mother are best friends, and Christopher is already used to seeing August face since he was a baby—so he doesn't really feel weird out about it. However, as time goes, Christopher started to realize how everyone else sees August; and then he understood that August is different, unlike the other normal kids they hung out with. Christopher was there when August had to go through surgeries. Together they were obsessed with Star Wars and having dreams of traveling to Pluto. But it wasn't always easy being August's friend. And as Christopher go through a very hard day in his life, he realized the true meaning of friendship—and that good friendship worth a little extra effort.I love how this novella takes us to a different perspective and setting than what we've seen in Wonder or even The Julian Chapter. This story only takes place in one day, but there's a lot of flashbacks involved—so the reader will get to see the history of Christopher and August's friendship. I love Christopher's character so so much. There are several heartwarming moments that made my heart melt. Indeed Christopher is not without flaws, but that's what makes his character feel believable and real to me; because I can imagine being in his shoes and acting the same way he did. In the end, I'm really glad Christopher took the decision he thought was best—although it might be hard for him. Everything about this story felt honest, heartfelt, and it definitely stirred my emotions."Listen, this was a scary thing that happened today. It's natural for you to be upset. When something scary like this happens, it acts like a wake-up call, you know? It makes us reassess what's important in life. Our family. Our friends. The people we love."....Read the full review here:http://www.thebookielooker.com/2015/0...

    Happy Election Day everyone! Since I was really sad that I'm not old enough to vote yet, I went to my favorite store B&N today to read-not buy anything, sadly :( Because I finished the Julian chapter a couple days ago, I had something to compare this story to, which was nice. I felt like Palacio did a better job with character development in the Julian chapter; the Christopher one dragged in some places. Still giving it a 4.5 though :)

    This one wasn't as good as The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story...maybe it was because I didn't remember anything about Christopher. Still, I liked it a lot. I loved the parts about when both Christopher and Auggie were still close friends.

    Hermosa historia, como todas las de wonder :) extrañaba a Auggie y verlo a través de una de sus mejores amigos fue genial... Recomendado como lectura liviana y para quienes gustaron de la lección de August. Además es cortito, se lee en una tarde e incluso menos.

    4.5 / 5Amo cómo la autora nos hace recordar la importancia de las cosas que damos por sentadas, y que olvidamos que son por las que vale la pena vivir. Increíble.Reseña: http://www.eternamenteentiniebla.com/...

    It's clearly complicated for a child to completely understand Auggie's situation or just being sensitive about it. That's why I love Palacio's stories. For these little kids nothing is black and white and uncertaintes are allowed.

    “We can’t just be friends when it’s convenient. Good friendships are worth a little extra effort!”This book is just 75 something pages of complete adorable. It may not be written in a serious vein like Wonder, and it may not be very long, but it was the most perfect, most relaxing little book I've read this year. Of course, like Wonder, Pluto is written for a Middle Grade audience, exploring problems well known to young children, but I was really surprised by how much I liked Christopher and his voice. He was an absolute delight to read, and even though I didn't remember too much about him from Wonder, he was an easily relatable, easy-going kid. Pluto is basically all about making tough choices about friendship and I think this book works really well as a companion to Wonder. I WAS PROVIDED A FREE ECOPY OF THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE OF AN HONEST REVIEW. THIS DID NOT IN ANY WAY, HOWEVER, INFLUENCE THE CONTENT OF THIS REVIEW.

    Definitely a good installment to Wonder! However, I just felt that The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story has a stronger inspirational impact compared to this, but this book is still a must-read especially for kids. :)

    [3'5]La verdad es que ha sido bonito ir viendo como los personajes iban aprendiendo de sus errores y viviendo nuevas experiencias. Han sido historias bonitas pero en definitiva esperaba un poco más de ellas.Aún así los recomiendo ya que son una lectura amena, entretenida y está muy bien ir viendo como piensan y aprenden los personajes.

    Mas bien es un 3.5 No es un libro relevante para la serie, sin embargo vale la pena leerlo porque, aunque aporta datos menores, ayudan a conocer otros momentos en la vida de August.Mi reseña:http://www.navegandoentrelibros.cl/20...

    Pluto happens to be yet another installment from Wonder-land.It tells the story from the POV of Christopher, Auggie's former best friend, who originally had barely more than a passing mention in Wonder.The story was pretty much okay-ish throughout, though it does get better towards the end, which is exactly what had happened in the case of The Julian Chapter: A Wonder Story too.When I'd first seen the cover, I got really excited thinking this was a new stand-alone book from R.J. Palacio.(Also, the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the cover was chota bheem :|)I think it's time she wrote something new, instead of cashing in on the popularity of Auggie Pullman.

    R.J. Palacio completely blew me away with Wonder and once I finished reading it I started wondering (no pun intended) why I hadn't read it before. She's an amazing writer and everything and I'm glad she has released something new but I really do wish she'd come up with something new, something far apart from what she created in Wonder. I don't know exactly what to think of this short story so I decided to give it a three-stars rating; it wasn't bad but I didn't enjoy it to be honest. This short novel is about a minor character in Wonder who I can barely remember, so I feel like this story wasn't even necessary and doesn't aport anything to Wonder. I'll be patiently waiting for R.J. Palacio to release something new and I hope this time it's not another Wonder story.

    Come ogni volta che finisco un libro di r.j palacio rimango soddisfatta , un libro pieno di emozioni e sentimenti . Io credo che tutti quanti dovrebbero leggere i suoi libri perchè non raccontano solo la storia di Auggie ma ti insegnano veramente tante cose che ormai si sono perse nella nostra generazione.
