Teen Book Review: “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky

This novel follows observant “wallflower” Charlie as he charts a course through the strange world between adolescence and adulthood. First dates, family drama, and new friends. Sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Devastating loss, young love, and life on the fringes. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie must learn to navigate those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up. This book is really emotional and a good read for teens who may feel out of place or like they don’t fit in. It makes you think about things in a different perspective and how life is short and the little moments are worth everything. It’s a good read for all ages and genders and will definitely develop a place in your heart.
