From Amazon - Narrated as 1991 diary/letters by depressed first-year high-schooler Charlie, counselled for fighting bully and for lost trauma memory, seven when "best friend" Aunt Helen died. Sister has secret abortion, he drives. Girl Sam drives pickup truck through tunnel for restorative screaming, standing like in film Titanic, gently awakens his virginal romantic dreams and body, shares drugs and Rocky Horror Picture Show. After pal Michael suicides, awake but non-responsive Charlie hospitalized, and horrifying memory surfaces for his restoration to health. Now a movie.
With so much hype surrounding this book and a movie that was recently released, I just had to check out The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I am happy to report that it is amazing! The book is so realistic and moving, something I haven't seen in young adult books for some time. It has became a favorite of mine and I recommend it to everyone. Read it!
