Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Absolutely Stunning! I love this book so very much! It is by far one of my favorites. You will be intriged by Charley and the way he grows throughout the story. 5 stars! 01/21/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book for the price. Perfect purchase for the young lady who wanted it. Best price on the web for the book, fast delivery and brand new. 12/31/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Amazing. I went about it the wrong way and saw the movie before reading the book. The movie itself was great. I'm only about 126 pages into the book and I can already tell it is going to be one of my favorite books. Of course, there are so many details and stories in the book that are not in the movie (as with most). This book is witty, charming, emotional, among other things. It does what books should do and gives you a different outlook on certain things in life. It brings back the 'infinite' feelings from being young and free. Amazing. 02/05/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book! A little dose of harsh reality & definitely for more mature audiences. But overall, very realistic and relatable. 01/19/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great Book, Not Necissarily For PreTeens The book was very well written, but, is aimed toward the preteen audience. The content of the book, in my opinion, is a little to risque for the 12-15 year old age group. 08/21/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I love this book! I remember reading this for the first time in 10th grade and I fell in love with it. My favorite book of all time. I'm so glad I finally bought it. :) 01/07/2014
