Reuires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever Standing on the fringes of life offers a uniue perspective But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor'A coming of age tale in the tradition of The Catcher in the Rye and A Separate Peace often inspirational and always beautifully written' USA Today. The Perks of Being a Wallflower: the most moving coming-of-age classicBurned some readers eyes although I will add that "ANYONE WHO REALLY BELIEVES THESE ARE NOT ELEMENTS REGULARLY "who really believes these are not elements regularly in the life of the average high school student has probably not been to high school since the days of one room schoolhouses My criticisms mostly have to do with the characterizations almost exclusively centered on our main character and room schoolhouses My criticisms mostly have to do with the characterizations almost exclusively centered on our main character and CharlieCharlie is a character who had a lot of possibilities all mostly missed He waffles between well beyond high school profundity and confounding childishness One minute he s pondering the meaning of life with some real intuitiveness sometimes and the next he s wrapped up in some kind of nauseatingly twee description of something Do you know what a Secret Santa is And who pray is the friend on the other end of these letter entries This friend whose persona would seem to have had enough rotations around the sun to know about sex LSD pot heroin etc but has never heard of a Secret Santa or masturbation Is this like the Kitty of Anne Frank s diary or is this a real person We never know and the Dear Friend salutations and the Love Always closings uickly become tiresome when at the outset the diaryletter approach seemed like a cool ideaAs other reviewers have asked is Charlie meant to have some intellectual disability or isn t he In reading it almost made me angry that I wasn t iven enough evidence to form a conclusion becaus. L he is by no means popular Shy introspective intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward he is a wallflower caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory the world of first dates and mix tapes family dramas and new friends; the world of sex drugs and The Rocky Horror Picture Show when all one. .

I did not love this book and do not understand its popularity I think my biggest concern that I cannot seem to "get over the fact that this kid has been abused and then witnesses another abuse "over the fact that this kid has been abused and then witnesses another abuse intervening Maybe the draw is for those who have been through similar situations I just can t relate It also disturbs me that Charlie seems to send such personal information to what appears to be a complete Stranger I Glad I am Mr. Jelly's Business glad he found a friend in his teacher suggested he read many books several of which I would now also like to readThat being said I see no perks to being a wallflower at all The kid is abused and allowswatches things happen to himself and others I think the only attraction to this book must be to be a voyeur into a messed up teenage boy s lifeThe young man who recommended I read this book had a similar life so I can understand why he related and loved it so much My heartoes out to him and the author who probably also lived through a similar situation First of all I respect any opinion that this is a 6 1/2 Body Parts (Body Movers, great book But I must say I am confounded by the thousands of five star reviews because not only do I not see that but I actively aggressively disliked The Perks of Being a Wallflower which would have been aptly titled The Perks of Being Weird and WeepyI was not put off or bothered by the sex drinking drugs language or some of the other things which seemed to have.
