This is a coming of age story that encompasses all aspects of high school troubles – friends, family, sexuality, drugs and mental health. For this reason, this book was placed on many high school reading lists. For the very same reason, this book was Banned in other schools. There’s something about Charlie’s story that just felt so very real, which is why so many people can relate to it, adults and teenagers alike. Although some of the themes discussed could be considered ‘delicate’, I don’t think any of them are addressed in a way that should come with a warning
Chbosky manages to write a story that (shows) the raw reality of the mind of a high school student whilst also weaving an interesting story. If you haven’t already read The Perks of Being a Wallflower then I would urge you to do so now! Although aimed at teenagers, this story is meant for anyone who has ever been through high school (so that’s pretty much everyone!), especially those that have ever felt like a wallflower. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a real modern classic and I’d highly recommend it to all.
