The Perks of Being A Wallflower

This astounding novel follows fifteen-year old introverted boy named Charlie through his freshman year of high school through a series of letters addressed to an unnamed person. Charlie takes us through the firsts of teenage life: first dance, first date, first kiss. The portrayal of high school is not ordinary– instead; it is raw and frank depictions of real problems such as drug abuse, mental health issues, teenage pregnancy, and suicide. The one line that I have learned to live by is, ” We accept the love we think we deserve.” The more inclusive and honest people are, and the more accepting they are of each other, the more harmoniously everyone will be in the long run.
