In the book, Wonder, by Raquel Palacio, August's sister, Via, is close friends with a girl named Miranda. Miranda was the friend who Via saw as being the nicest to August and who always made an effort to include him in whatever the girls were doing. The summer before the girls went to high school, Via was a little surprised that Miranda had not called her or answered her texts.
When they finally see each other on the first day of school, Via is very surprised because Miranda looks different. She's cut and dyed her hair pink, and she's wearing a striped tube top. Via is surprised because she has known Miranda for a long time, and this is not Miranda's style at all.
