quality literature: the perks of being a wallflower

this book tackles all the maladies known to teenagers.  every. single. one of them.  well, except bad grades.  despite all the things they do and all the things that are done to them, they still all manage to get stellar grades and into top notch colleges across the nation.  yea.  you'll have to suspend reality a little with that one.  but, hey.  it is fiction. 

it's a very well written story though.  it's a series of letters written in the stream of consciousness style.  (dang i really hate not knowing who he was writing to).  the main characters are very likeable and kind. 

i guess that's all i have to say about this one, except that it's a quick read if you're looking for one of those.

genre: teenagers
setting: near penn state in the 90's
reading level: (mature) high school

  1. I loved this book too. But I would caution that is definitely for the older end of "young adult" fiction
