5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, Engrossing, MANY MANY TEARS! "Courtesy of Flare Reviews", 19 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Paperback)
It is a rare treat to find a book that once it is finished, you want to pick it up and read it all over again. For me, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is exactly that.

Telling the story of Charlie through a series of letters over the course of a school year, Perks is a beautiful story of growing up. As Charlie, a wallflower (one who sits back and doesn't participate), starts high school he doesn't have any friends after his one and only friend Michael killed himself.

That is until he meets Sam and Patrick who teach him how to live and love.

I cannot even begin to describe how much this book touched my heart. Page by page I was brought deeper into Charlie's life and the lives of these people around him. I felt such a deep connection with Charlie, some of his experiences and feelings in life mirroring my own as I was his age and, to an extent, even now.

The true beauty in this book is the discovery of self and the discovery of why Charlie is the way he is, why he can't participate. It's fascinating and engrossing and prompted so many tears that it took a while for me to get over it. The writing is simple and the voice so clear that Charlie became very real to me. Wonderful.
