- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I love this book. I really do. There’s just something so enchanting about a novel made up of a series of diary entries. You don’t expect it to be as all-encompassing as it ends up being.
I have it in eBook form, and wasn’t planning on buying the physical copy, but I went to Barnes & Noble at the Grove, and the top level where all the fiction titles are was closed! So I was stuck downstairs, and this one just happened to be laying around, so I grabbed it and bought it.
Definite recommend guys.
Read the cult-favorite coming of age story that takes a sometimes heartbreaking, often hysterical, and always honest look at high school in all its glory. Also a major motion picture starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a funny, touching, and haunting modern classic.
The critically acclaimed debut novel from Stephen Chbosky, Perks follows observant “wallflower” Charlie as he charts a course through the strange world between adolescence and adulthood. First dates, family drama, and new friends. Sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Devastating loss, young love, and life on the fringes. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie must learn to navigate those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
