The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Summary: A 15 year old boy, Charlie, writes to a mysterious "friend" and tries to cope with the deaths of his favorite aunt and a close friend of his while starting high school. He also tries to be social, but gets mixed up with the wrong sort of people.
Review: It had a good momentum and flow to the story, but there were many things the author could have done better. I felt that this was the sort of story where everything bad happens to this one kid and he complains about how hard his life is. I also felt that Chbosky exaggerated what high school life is like. Chbosky's characters were very one-dimensional and could have been developed further. There was also a lot of unnecessary inapropriate content.
