BOOK DESCRIPTION: It is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, where all you need is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.
MY OPINION: Before I even begin to speak about this book, I'm going to take a moment to breathe. It's been more than a week since I read the last word and I'm still shaking a little, feeling like this book is made up of things like warm air and sunlight. It's not a regular thing for me to be so consumed in a story that is told through letters. I usually don't like it and I usually don't read it and I usually want nothing to do with it. However, in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, this was definitely not the case.
