Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower is about a young boy named Charlie who is starting his first year of high school.

Charlie isn’t the outgoing type of person like his brother who plays college football, or like his older sister who is beautiful and popular and everyone likes her. He keeps to himself, reads books, and over thinks everything. Many people think that Charlie is weird and has mental problems, except for his two new found friends Patrick and Sam.

Patrick, Sam, and Charlie all become best friends. Charlie started to grow feelings for Sam and thought she was the most beautiful girl in the whole entire world. But when Charlie actually finally had a chance to be with her, she had left for college along with Patrick.

This book about Charlie’s life is heartfelt and touching. With Charlie telling his own life, you would think that you were Charlie. You start to feel what he feels and have a view on life in a whole different way.
