Publisher Description

Now with a brand-new afterword to mark the 20th anniversary of a beloved cult classic! The #1 New York Times bestselling coming-of-age story that takes a sometimes heartbreaking, often hysterical, and always honest look at high school in all its glory. Also a major motion picture starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a funny, touching, and haunting modern classic.

The critically acclaimed debut novel from Stephen Chbosky, Perks follows observant “wallflower” Charlie as he charts a course through the strange world between adolescence and adulthood. First dates, family drama, and new friends. Sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Devastating loss, young love, and life on the fringes. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie must learn to navigate those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

A #1 New York Times bestseller for more than a year, an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults (2000) and Best Book for Reluctant Readers (2000), and with millions of copies in print, this novel for teens (or “wallflowers” of more-advanced age) will make you laugh, cry, and perhaps feel nostalgic for those moments when you, too, tiptoed onto the dance floor of life.

Relatable and very sad

Reading this has made me feel for Charlie. Repressing and disassociating your life away is the way Charlie copes, and it was really refreshing to hear that there was someone I related to. I will not reread because it is too sad. You need to read it at least once, because it has amazing lessons about teenage and young adult life. I love Charlie, cannot stop thinking about him.

Wish I read this in high school

While I watched the movie and it changed a lot for me the book would’ve definitely been my favorite in high school

I only bought this because I had to for a class.

It’s atrociously written. The protagonist is insufferable, and about as believable as a gutter rag tabloid.
