Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the story of what it’s like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie’s letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives or to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and music—when all one requires to feel infinite is that perfect song on that perfect drive.
Through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting story, a powerful novel that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up.

Amazingly Unforgettable Book
The characters where amazing. I felt like I knew them.
The narrator did an amazing job and made the book come alive.
I love this book and didn't want it to end. Still thinking about it days later.
There is a reason this book got made into a hit a movie and a reason why the author ALSO got to write the screenplay and direct it. This book is fantastic (and so is the film).
This book is the weirdest oddest strangest book ever. It makes me smile,laugh,sad,concerned,and disagree. Thats not why its strange,it just is. I have no other words but this:I love this book in the most odd way
Perks of being a wallflower was a good book. I didn't expect it to end like it did. But it did leave me wondering what happened next.
I love this book. There are A Lot of parts in it where I was uncomfortable and I decided not to listen when my brother was in the car. But I couldn't stop listening because Charlie was just like me. Figuring out the world, trying to understand how it worked and where we fit. He spoke volumes of what was always in my mind and I've never felt closer to a character before. I wouldn't recommend it to most of my friends for fear that they knew what I once chose to listen to. But if it was someone I was close to, really close to, who I knew wouldn't judge me but try to understand why this book was so important to me, I would ask them to read it. Because I found that I wasn't alone.
Amazing book, thought provoking and throughly entertaining. Told from the perspective of a teenage boy its interesting to see the world through his eyes and experiences.
I think this book is so beautiful and amazing, it really is almost the book of my dreams. The narrator is perfect and it really feels like Charlie is reading, this feels like my best audible read in a while. Please oh please get this book, it is so much pleasure to read!
