Henry is one of the most physically developed boys in August's grade; he's described several times as already looking like a teenager. He and Miles begin the school year as Julian's trusty sidekicks, so they're often either complicit or actively involved in Julian's bullying. When Julian doesn't attend the camping trip, Henry helps save August from the seventh grade bullies and accepts August as a member of the community afterwards.
