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.

Excellent narration of a very great story of one boy struggle growing up. For those who have or had an awkward adolescents, this story will bring back some of the good and bad of the time., but there is hope!
I saw the movie, and fell in love! It became my favorite movie. When I kept on seeing the ads from YouTubers, I decided to try Audible, and thought that it would be cool to try it on Audible. I found the story had much more to it,and was amazing! The performance wasn't perfect, but it was still great, I enjoyed the acting, but Recorded Books should try some better microphones, the quality wasn't perfect either. Overall, I think that it was amazing, and it just blew my socks off! Hope Steven Chobosky makes a sequel so I see what happens to the gang of misfits.
I don't know why the pic is sideways
I enjoyed it beginning to end. I Loved Charlie, and I loved the actor who narrated. It's an easy listen, but does get a little dark at times. This would be an easy book to listen to on a long trip
I enjoyed the letter format of the story. Charlie has a beautiful soul, that feels deeply, his capacity for love, forgiveness, and hope is inspiring.
I loved it my fave part was when they listened to music my fave Cartier is Sam because she is fun
