I did my book talk on The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I really loved this book even though it was a little dark. I connect with this book in a few ways and I think that’s why I liked it so much, because I can relate to it. Charlie is a Wallflower. He rather sit quietly in the background than participate. He knows a lot about people by observing them. He meets Sam and Patrick and they take him in and he feels like he belongs. Charlie faces many struggles in the book but he finds himself and knows what will make him happy. He figures out what’s important in life and what matters. You should be yourself rather than pretend you’re something you’re not.
