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.

Reviews for The Perks of Being a Wallflower
This book is for anyone. Read this when you are a teenager, like me and you will see how this book shows in painful clarity how it is to grow up and not understand. by Jordan
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is about a boy named Charlie who is in his first year of high school. He experiences a lot of new things, he learns to cope with his feelings and problems, the loss of his favourite aunt and his friend, and meanwhile, still tries to have a social life. He is a very emotional, socially awkward character and I think a lot of people will be able to relate to him. The writing style is very simple, it's almost like he's just talking to you instead of writing.
It's just an amazing book, A+, 5/5 stars, all that stuff. It's inspiring, thought-provoking, interesting, all of the positive adjectives you can think of. You will definitely like this book if you like John Green's books and It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. by Lauren Hoeve

Charlie. Where to start with the character that every teen can relate to? He's not a character teens should look up to, respect, or idolize, because he makes the mistakes that every teen does. He is just proof that someone else really is going through the same thing. He really becomes more of a friend then anything.
This book is written as a journal, but Charlie writes like he's talking to a real person. It's definitely a different way of writing, and it really works for this book.
Charlie really is a wallflower. He looks at his life like he's watching through a window that he can't get on the other side of.
Charlie experiences all of the things that normal teens are exposed to, and he handles each in a different way.
Read THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, because Charlie makes you realize that everyone is going though the same types of ordeals. Love him, hate him, root for him, and cherish him. I know I always will.
