The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Rating: Excellent! (5)
Charlie isn't your normal high school freshman. He's a wallflower, that kid sitting on his own in the lunch room. That is, until Charlie meets Sam and Patrick. In this stunning novel which is arranged as letters sent by Charlie to an unnamed friend, Charlie learns what it means to be a friend. Your heart will wretch for Charlie and his friends as they go through the painful and wonderful situations that countless teenagers in real life go through every year. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is similar to John Green's Looking for Alaska in that the main characters find themselves discovering themselves as they make some of the best friends they'll ever have. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys young adult fiction.
