The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky
Plot: The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a gripping coming of age story about Charlie, a socially awkward fifteen-year-old boy, as he navigates through the ups and downs of new friends and first loves during his freshman year of high school. Through his endeavors to participate in teenage life, he observes what it is like to be a young adult in the early 1990s. Told through a series of letters, this novel is filtered through Charlie’s mind during his high school adventure. Both comical and heart-wrenching, The Perks of Being a Wallflower truthfully captures a teenage experience.
Review: I liked this book, and I think other teens would enjoy it as well. However, the darker themes in the novel call for a mature audience. I would recommend this to any teen looking for a semi-modern coming of age story.
