Charlie is a freshman.
And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his year yet socially awkward,he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.

Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But he can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

4.0 The Perks of Being a Wallflower
‘‘Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.’’ This was a rough read in quite a few ways, but I really enjoyed it. It deals with quite a few taboo (at least in YA) subjects, but it does so carefully and realistically. Charlie is certainly not a common teenager, but he reads as a teenager ...

3.0 Review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I had to read this book for school as a part of the summer book reading program at my high school. I have to run a group discussion for it tomorrow with a group of 15 students - none of whom I have met. The story itself was up and down for me. I liked the main character as I felt like he was this...
