Stephen Chbosky (1988), The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Pocket books.
By Vanesa Porras, 2º ESO A
This book is the diary of Charlie, a freshman that isn’t very popular. He writes letters to a stranger talking about his teenage problems.
The part I most liked would be towards the end when I discovered that Charlie had been raped by ... . I liked it because I didn’t expect it and all that love that he felt towards her vanishes away in the blink of an eye. Apparently she was raped when she was young that´s why she did this to Charlie. I also liked it because it was the only sad moment of the story, well it wasn’t the only one, but it was the saddest.I would recommend this book to teenagers. It is a deeply affecting story that will make you experience back all those wild and poignant ¨roller-coaster¨ days when you were growing up. It will help teenagers with their problems, they can imagine themselves in Charlie’shoes, and feel identified.
