About this item

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Book is Stephen Chbosky's premier novel. This critically acclaimed book has become a cult phenomenon, and the subjects covered inside have been the object of discussion and debate. This book illustrates the complexities of high school. You read how the character evolves from a wallflower innocence through events which change the course of this young life. Events such as dramas at home, the excitement of a first date and learning about new friends can be found here. This book travels through the uncharted territory of sex, drugs and the music, fun and risque topics found in the cult movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This book illustrates the emotional ups and downs, aches and pains, happiness and joys of growing up. In The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, the main character illustrates that, although there is safety standing on the fringe watching as life happens, there comes a time when you have to jump in and sink or swim.

Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective...but there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
Since its publication, Stephen Chbosky's haunting debut novel has received critical acclaim, provoked discussion and debate, grown into a cult phenomenon with over two million copies in print, spent over six months at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, and inspired a major motion picture.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it's like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. The world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. Of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

Customer review by Anthon

4.0 stars by Anthon

Dealt with a lot of difficult issues that face teens today but did so in a way that is very genuine and innocent. Chbosky's writing style is fantastic--Charlie's voice literally speaks off every page. Contains some of the greatest wisdom and insights into life's trivialities. Physical condition of the book was great.
