The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Meet Charlie. Charlie is a freshman, going through the motions of his life trying to please everyone else around him. Take the journey from ordinary kid along the roller coaster of life to a point of no return. Friendship. First Love. Jealous. Sexual tension. Confusion. Its all apart of life and we're all just along for the ride. From standing on the edge to feeling infinite, Charlie describes what it's really like to be a teenager through a series of letters to an anonymous receiver.You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll be left wondering what the hell just happened. It's that mind blowing.

No book describes what it is like to be a teenager better than this one. You'll feel the heartache, the thirst for answers, and by the end you'll know Charlie as if he were a friend of your own. Beautifully written, yet painfully realistic this book straddles the line between a fictional memoir and pure artistry. We all know Charlie, he is all of us. One boy, symbolizing everything that being a teenager is about. His thoughts, his actions, his emotions are our own.

If you have a pulse, you'll love The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Heck even a brain hungry zombie would love this book because it's that good. Quick in length, you'll devour this book before you know it. But be warned, once you've had a taste there is no going back. This novel is far too delectable to put down, and the addiction will spread with every turn of the page.
