The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

 By: Stephen Chbosky

Genre: YA fiction

Pages: 213

Published: 1999

Read: May

2 out of 5 stars 

I was disappointed with this book. I expected a much better novel. While it was well written and I don’t see why it should be “challenged”, the story just didn’t grab me. I think this may be one of those young adult novels where you need to be a young adult to really enjoy it. I usually love books written in letter or diary form, but it aggravated me that the story never revealed who the letters were written to, if it was just a diary, or why it was written in letter form in the first place. I was hoping this would be revealed at the end of the story and it never was. I also could have done without the storyline of the very personal relationship between Charlie and his teacher, whom he called by his first name. It creeped me out a bit.
