Staff Reviews


Charlie is a boy who doesn't really understand life as a teenager-- much like most teens. He writes letters to an unnamed "friend" describing his thoughts and struggles while he navigates high school with new friends, and seeing the world through Charlie's eyes is a truly moving experience. — Paige Mushaw

I read this book when it was published almost 15 years ago, and I still think about it to this day. As something of an angsty, late-blooming weirdo myself, I felt like "Perks" was written specifically for me. While I can now look back and see that my teenage experiences weren't all that unique, or even interesting, The Perks of Being a Wallflower was the right book at the right time. — Chris Linendoll

Trying to understand being a teen today isn't easy. "Perks" are few, but when they come they are thoughtful, beautiful, even if a little troubling. When you are a "wallflower" you see a different side to it all. A wonderful teen coming-of-age story you'll want to share with all you know. — Jeanette
