Perks of Being a Wallflower: By Stephan Chbosky

Hey readers, I am here today to talk about one of my favorite books, Perks of Being a Wallflower. You will like this book if you like books like Looking for Alaska and Wonder. This book is more appropriate for teens than tweens because there are nuances in the language that force you to read between the lines and a tween might have trouble understanding.

This is a realistic book that takes place in high school from the point of view of a boy named Charlie. The story is told from a series of diary entries written by this boy in the first person. Charlie is a wallflower, or an outsider, until he meets two people, Sam and Patrick, at a school football game and they welcome him into their group. Sam and Patrick are two seniors who are down to earth and kind but also like to party and live life. Charlie, who is somewhat awkward, gets to know these free spirited people and their friends who change his life as a freshman. As the story goes on you learn about Charlie and his past and some reasons why he is a wallflower.

I really love this book because it grabs you into the world of Charlie and makes you feel like you are experiencing what he is experiencing. I also loved this book because I didn't expect most of the things that had happened. I would definitely recommend this book to both genders.

Your Friend,
