Summary: I have read this book 3 times so far in the last year. I just find the book so inspiring and the main character Charlie has physiological disorders, there are A LOT of drinking, swearing, and sex stories but if you look past that the story in a whole is inspiring and a beautiful story all in all.
Summary: This book tackles so many controversial subjects. In a very, very gentle way. Gentle yet blunt. Helping a teen work their way maturely through issues. A lot of eyebrows could be raised at the list of content in this book- because yes, it has problems.
Summary: I started the book this morning and just finished it two minutes ago. I LOVED it. I tried it at the begging inning of the year, and wasn't too fond of it, but after loving the movie, I decided to try it again.
Summary: This is an amazing book. I have read it multiple times and it makes me sad each time. Some parts of the book we a bit iffy, but the book has a good message. The end of the book might not be clear to all children and they might have a hard time understanding it.
Summary: What parents don't understand is that teenagers are very mature and read a lot of books, and if you are looking into reading this book you probably can handle the topics. I think that when you read it, you will know if it was to mature for you.
Summary: This book is as emotional as if you were going through what the characters were going through.
Also, the perks of being a wallflower has all of the coming of age type of taboo subjects that one way or another your child is going to find out about.
Summary: I read this book a month ago and recommend it to all teenagers. All my friends who have read The Perks of Being a Wallflower on my suggestion say it's 'one of the best book they've ever read'.
Summary: The best I have read to date. Really presents good morals on common teenage dilemmas and controversies. Takes a REALISTIC approach on drug use and sex as well. In addition, the main character deeply connects with the introspective individual. The movie is just a great.
Summary: The writing in this book is brilliant. It shows the struggles of high school, friendships, drugs, and just being a teenager. I didn't put this book down. Although its young adult, you learn so much from it. I highly recommend this book.
Summary: The fact that this website exists is disheartening because reviews like these prevent kids from being exposed to art that discusses things that need to be heard. Without novels that talk about things that make us uncomfortable no one would have deep conversations that change the world.
