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.
Since its publication, Stephen Chbosky’s haunting debut novel has received critical acclaim, provoked discussion and debate, grown into a cult phenomenon with over three million copies in print, spent over one year at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, and inspired a major motion picture starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. The world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. Of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

My life after Perks.
Reading the perks of being a wallflower made me feel more emotional than I already am. Not in a bad way. I started to think about my life. I started to cry. Then I started to think how much Charlie and I had in common. First off, were both emotional. After I cried, and after I thought about how Charlie and i related I started to read. My eyes started to get heavy, I looked at the time and it was about 2:30. So I decided to sleep. I woke up late for work, nothing new. And did my regular routine. I finished the perks of being a wallflower for the 10th time. And it still made me feel like I read it for the first time. I smiled, I laughed, I cried, I was happy, nervous, and also sad. Why I relate besides that fact that both Charlie and I are emotional, is that I've gone through the same things. I recommend this book! I'm sure other people could relate! But it's the fact that once you start to read it you're automatically hooked and you start to feel like you know theses people. And then you realize that they're just characters In a book and then you wish they were real. So you can talk to them. And share your feelings because life isn't perfect and that's exactly what Charlie tells you. He tells you about his life.

Buy it. Enough said
An excellent read for anyone
Not the type of book that you would pick up on an average best-sellers list. It is controversial, and the author is not afraid to tackle some really tough subjects. But at the end of the novel, if you don't feel a little more alive, and a little more connected to what's really going on in the world of those you know, you didn't really read it. The book spoke volumes to me when I was younger, and continues to do so much later on in life. It gave me the courage to face things about myself, and things about others. Truly worth the time, just keep an open mind and remember that these things do happen, and you can't blindly ignore them, only approach them as the author does, and try to "participate".
