    Con Charlotte tiene la palabra culminan las historias derivadas de La Lección de August, aunque curiosamente esta es la historia donde menos tiene que ver con August. Aunque la historia es básicamente sobre la vida social de Charlotte en 5to grado, he soltado varias lagrimas en algunas paginas. Los relatos de Christopher y Charlotte nos hablan de la verdadera amistad.Me hubiera encantado saber si en el futuro la amistad de Charlotte, Ximena y S...

    "I mean, I've been nice to Auggie," I (Charlotte) said, "but Summer was kind. That's like nice to the tenth power or something. Do you know what I mean?"Charlotte is part of the group asked to welcome August into Beecher Prep. A standout student in fifth grade, Charlotte wants to be nice but also to remain neutral, not to attract any type of attention to herself. Its not an easy task as anything from choosing where to sit at lunch to whom she spe...

    This is the third Wonder "short" Story. The book was about Auggie's first year of school and what follows in the beginning of the next year through the perspective of reader-favorite Charlotte. This book barely circled and talked about Auggie (the book Wonder's main character). This book was truly about Charlotte and what was going on in her life.My goal was to read all the Wonder books before going and seeing the movie!

    Completely irrelevant to the Wonder story. I'm disappointed.Charlotte is one of the three kids who is asked to show Auggie around the school when he goes to visit the campus before the school year begins. She is polite and helpful but then just sort of fades away as the book goes on. She's not a friend, not an enemy ... just a nice kid who helped out when the principal asked her to.Nothing that happens to Charlotte is relevant to the action of th...

    4 / 5Aunque este relato se aparta mucho de la historia central de August, la autora nos expone nuevamente lo que significa la verdadera amistad. R.J. Palacio es una maestra en este aspecto.Reseña: http://www.eternamenteentiniebla.com/...

    “Have no friends not equal to yourself!”- Mr. Browne* * * “Just like I had managed to stay neutral in a war among the boys, I wanted to stay neutral in what might have turned into a war among the girls.”- Charlotte* * * “Every person’s story weaves in and out of someone else’s story.”- Charlotte* * * “Some friendships are like that. Maybe even the best friendships are like that. The connections are always there. They’re just i...

    This story takes place from the viewpoint of Charlotte, one of the Beecher prep students. I felt like this story started off pretty slow and was mostly just repeating the same occurrences we have already read, especially if you have read Wonder, The Julian Chapter, and Pluto. So I was pretty bored with it at first. However it did get better and later on we start to see more about Charlotte and we find out even more about the Beecher Prep students...

    Even though Auggie didn't show up much in this, I loved this Wonder story! It's a close second to the Julian chapter. I felt like I could relate to Charlotte so, so much-the group dynamic between her, Ximena, and Summer (a friendship that becomes hidden the moment they enter their social groups at school), her obsession with the homeless man, her constantly fluctuating feelings. Even though she's an elementary schooler, some of her experiences mi...

    I liked this one the most out of all the short stories/novellas. It's just so cute to see Charlotte's evolution throughout the year, how she started from being the nice-girl wannabe to being an actual nice, kind, considerate friend to everyone. However, I'm so sad I'm done. Looking forward to future novellas like this one.

    Durante a leitura do conto, fui ao cinema ver a adaptação do livro e foi engraçado ter uma cara para a Charlotte! Este conto já é um pouco maior, já é mesmo uma ''novella'' mas lê-se muito bem também, adorei o mistério em volta do Gordy Johnsson.

    There are some actions or ideas that are needed to be contemplated first before doing, but being kind isn't one of those. Just a fine amount of goodness to make one's day fancy! On the side note, I am hoping that R.J. Palacio will soon come up with a fresh concept apart from narrating the stories of the characters from Wonder.

    "It's not enough to be friendly. You have to be a friend."Charlotte is barely mentioned a few times in Wonder's story, but I knew there was more to say about her. In "Shingaling", we learn how Charlotte experienced Auggie's arrival, how the first year of middle school went for her and we realise she is also friends with the lovely Summer, so she also appears a lot in this nice short book.Four stars!

    This was disappointing.I didn't enjoy the story at all. I didn't care about these characters' life-styles.The 2 stars are for Summer and Charlotte whom I loved in the original Wonder story.

    Yup, llegó a mí en el momento indicado. Porque necesitaba una lectura rápida, ligera... Y qué mejor que entrar en el mundo de Wonder. ❤

    In "Wonder", "The Julian Chapter" and "Pluto", we learn about the boys in the fifth grade, their relationships, and how they change and grow in these relationships as the school-year progresses. This book, "Shingaling" is not a story about Auggie; it is about the girls in Auggie's class. We see the clicks these girls form, their preconceived ideas about some of the other girls in the class, and how many of them learn to look beyond those preconce...

    This was my absolute favorite section in Auggie and Me! In Wonder, Auggie is fighting battles against bullying and never had time to show other big battles people were fighting in their lives. But in “Shingaling” you see that Charlotte is fighting her own battle for a social group and for friends at school. You would have never thought Wonder and Shingaling happened at the same time; it’s almost like a separate book by itself (other than th...

    This was okay, I quite liked it, but it had way too much teenage drama for my taste. I'm glad I'm finally done with all the Wonder novellas. I planned to read them right after finishing the main book (I loved that book), but I always found myself starting some other book...

    RJ Palacio has done it again! After reading this I had both my daughters 9age 9 & 10) sit down and read it as well. Wonderful story for tween girls, how to be a good friend, expectations and misperceptions of classmates. Many lessons in this quick read.

    "God bless America"It's a sweet story, too, beside The Julian Chapter and Pluto.When i was reading Wonder and watch the Movie, the image of Charlotte (Elle Mckinnon) appeared in my head. Her look was different from this book decribed, but her genitive was still like what i captured - She's nice but not kind enough!But while this journey, glad to know more about the girls drama, she's becoming truely kind, more to Auggie but also her other "friend...

    Even though I think that Ms Palacio should consider writing an entirely new story instead of spinning off more and more stories riding on the coat tails of Wonder, I can't deny that I love returning to the familiar setting at Beecher Prep School with the various characters in Auggie's life. This is Charlotte's story; she was part of Auggie's "Welcome Committee" organised by Mr Tushman at the beginning of grade 5. Charlotte is seen by most (includ...

    Ser amable es el primer paso para ser bueno.Bueno, bueno, pues la verdad es que el libro es bastante entretenido y se lee en nada, como todos los de R.J. pero como dije en el de Julian, igual y ese era un poco necesario en la historia y conocer más del chico que molestaba a August y todo, pero en este libro de Charlotte creo que no aporta nada, de verdad, nada a la historia, podría ser un libro completamente diferente hablando de Charlotte y li...

    You would think I'd be tired of all these Wonder novellas floating around but I'm not. Shingaling is a strong addition to the series focusing on one of Auggie's classmates, Charlotte. We get a female's perspective on things that have transpired that faithful fifth year in Beecher Prep.In hindsight, it would probably have been better to categorize these stories under Beecher Prep since everyone (including the teachers) seemed to have a fascinating...

    I really enjoyed this story! Summer, my favorite character from Wonder, plays a prominent part in this story. I am an adult man, but this story allowed me to see what middle school would be like through the eyes of a young girl with all the associated drama. It's a story about friendships and how they are not always what we expect. I thought it rang true. I can't wait for my two daughters to read this story. I know they will enjoy it as well.

    I definitely recommend this book because although the book is in the perspective of Charlotte the setting was the same but the whole story was on the girls side of thing in Breacher Prep. One thing I like is seeing everybody's mind and reading about what they do and how they think at certain situations. Overall I recommend this book because it is a little different to the wonder story with the only similarity being the setting.

    While this short character story wasn't quite as involved or eye opening as the story about Julian, I still really love and appreciate these deeper character insights. Really helps complete the Wonder story
