by Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is about a quiet 15 year old named Charlie. The books starts with him writing to an unknown recipient about his life and two traumatic experiences he has gone through. Charlie eventually becomes friends with two seniors and starts experiencing drugs and parties while dealing with his own thoughts and problems.

I really liked this book because it made me think about how many people deal with traumatic experiences. The plot was emotional with some comedy, overall is makes you want to keep reading.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading books about coming of age. But be warned, this book has content that includes: suicide, sexuality, adolescents and drug use.
