It’s funny how you can stumble across a book and completely fall in love! I was introduced to The Perks of Being a Wallflower by chance. My boyfriend picked it up in the airport on the way home a year and a half ago and I’ve read and re-read it ever since. (Including finishing it yet again today)
If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you pick it up! (Even if you have seen the film)
Simply put, it’s a short, simple to read novel about young Charlie. He’s clearly intelligent, internal and so awkward that at times I read with my eyes half closed terrified of what he’s going to say. It’s more than just your typical “coming of age” story, and I feel like a lot of us can identify with him even if we’re well out of our teens.
But that’s just my opinion. Have you read The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Did Charlie make you burst out laughing and silently weep as I did?
