"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 year 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 he can't stay on the sidelines 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."

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed reading this modern classic. Charlie was such a great character. I loved seeing how he overcame his past to became a more rounded person. With everything he faced he managed to come out of it alright. I loved Patrick and Sam.

This book just did something to you. I want to read all the books that Charlie. Listen to the music he mention. 

Really enjoyed this book. I think you all should read it. Also think this would be the perfect summer read!!! 

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
