He then forms a new friendship with a girl named Summer and tells her about his split with Jack, who is really puzzled by Auggie’s change in attitude towards him, but soon realizes his fault and has even a fight with Julian who has insulted Auggie, to defend him. Later he apologizes to Auggie, so they reconcile.
