The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Ok let's try again.

I tried yesterday to write this review but stopped because I didn’t know from where to start. Actually, I didn’t know on what to focus on. It was just one of those books that impacts you in a way but it gives you hard time to put it in words and I guess that's because…

The perks of being a wallflower celebrates the small things that we all go through but not have the time to notice because it becomes a repeat in our lives that we don’t pay attention to it on purpose.

The perks of being a wallflower will make you laugh and think a lot. And it only touches things on the surface without going too deep in it. because it allows or it gives you the space to think about it the way you want. The way every reader perceives things is different from the other and the author took that into consideration. 

I had difficult time picturing Emma Watson as Sam but this is due to obvious reasons.

The book dealt with so many issues that teen face without being skeptical about it. I believed Charlie was a kid with problems. I believed and felt sorry for him.

And at first, I thought this book wasn’t for young adults up until I read that it was Amazon's #1 young adult novel. It's different from other books.
