Just finished reading "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky and I must say... if you haven't read it yet then you should. I heard a lot about it but never really got around to buying it until a friend just handed it to me and told me to read it. I was expecting a sappy teenage love story but on the contrary, it was the farthest thing from sappy. Although the characters were teens and it had tidbits that discussed love, it was definitely one of the most intriguing books I ever read. Start reading, and I dare you to not finish it within a week.
The protagonist "Charlie" is a naive teenage boy that discusses the events and details of his life in letters he sends to an unknown reader he calls "Dear Friend". He's as the books title directs you to assume, a wallflower; from a slightly dysfunctional family and is the farthest thing from ordinary. His trail of thoughts are written in his letters which gives the reader insight to why he acts the way he does without straight out stating the not so obvious. I'm not going to give away the plot. Instead, i'm going to leave you with pictures of passages from the book in hopes something may spark your interest and encourage you to read it.
