Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix-tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. 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. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up. The Perks of Being a Wallflower film will be released in cinemas 3rd October 2012.

Customer reviews

This book has a very unique outlook on life and makes you see things very differently than you normally would. The outlook comes from Charlie who is a very autistic/Aspergers boy and as the title suggests is a wallflower. A social outcast watching society from the sideline. It's a great book as it gives life a new feel about it and isn't about vampires that we have been seeing a lot of. Definitely a book to buyshow more
