Told in the perspective of letters addressed to the reader, this book is definitely one of my favourites I've read about high school and teenage life. It centres around a teenager named Charlie (who is the one writing the "letters") and…

Unlike many other books talking about teenage life and struggles, I find this book to be very accurate. The whole book feels like a personal conversation with Charlie, and has a comforting setting to it.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is a young adult book that has stood the test of time. Despite taking place in the ’90s, it is equally as relatable to readers today as it was 22 years ago when it was initially published.…

I am hopelessly in love with this novel. I remember reading it for the first time when I was in middle school at some point - I'm thinking 8th grade. I remember crying my eyes out at the end and then having to go downstairs for dinner and…

Charlie is a 15-year-old student and has just started his freshman year of high school. He is a “wallflower”, very shy but also very considerate and smart. The entire book is about the letters that he sends to a friend. Charlie is…

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a very important book in my life. It held a very special place in my heart, and also started my infatuation with Rocky Horror. However, upon re-reading it, I realize that character development is weak at…

Read for a book club. One gal loved it in high school, but not so much in her 30's. It was very difficult for me to read it to the end.

It wasn't something that I would usually read. The story is about the high school life of this boy. He's a very thoughtful introvert, who writes a lot of stuff that happens in his life down.

I read this book 6 times possibly more but I love it. Still can't figure out who the letters are for, its pretty irrelevant but I just wanted to know. I recommend this book for pre-teens and older.
