Charlie is a freshman.
And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.
The perks of being a Wallflower is a funny but sad book. It is written from the main character Charlie's point of view in a collection of letters addressed to 'friend'.
This book shows the ups and downs of Charlie's slightly complicated life and makes Charlie's life seem like your second world.
I really enjoyed this book because of the way the author used the words. I'd give it a 4/5 and I'd recommend it to older readers because it does have quite mature themes in it.
