I’ve been reading Young Adult books (Specifically, Hush, Hush, Mortal Instruments Series, Divergent) straight for about a month now. And I guess I’ve been getting tired of the same old romances and kick-ass-heroines and supernaturalities, that the Perks was such a breath of fresh air for me. Not to mention how awesome of a book it really was.
I love how relateable Chalie is. AND he’s a wallflower. It was just amazing how I knew that fact, yet all that happened to him kept me glued to the book. He was just another normal teenager (yet maybe not), but the way he saw things and thought about them just really amazed me. Yes, I know he isn’t a real person and maybe Chobchsky is just a really awesome narrator, but I think that just adds more to how good the book is. I love books in which you know that the characters aren’t real and they don’t exist, but still you can imagine them living on this earth along with you.
All I can think about is Charlie right now, thus the paragraph before, but all in all, it just sums down to the fact that THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER IS absolutely beautiful, and I think y’all should read it!
