Description

Now a major movie, starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

    Stephen Chbosky's book, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" Is the most inspirational and heart wrenching book I have ever read, this book was reccommended to me by my best friend, and I loved every minute of reading this book. When I found out the movie was being released with such talented actors and actresses to be Charlie, Sam and Patrick I literaly started crying because I was so excited. Only to soon find out that the Film adaption of Perks of Being a Wallflower was a limited release and was not going to be released in New Zealand I was devastated and (obviously) cried because I thought that the movie was going to be a worldwide hit. If you are a pre-teen, teen, adult or even elder, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. This book will bring back such cherished memories. Being a Teen myself, I can familiarise with each and every character, connecting with both emotion, and experiences, this is now my FAVOURITE BOOK OF ALL TIME. Logan Lermin (Charlie) Emma Watson (Sam) and Ezra Miller <3 (Patrick) I just thoroughly hope that Stephen Chbosky and all the film production companies release Perks of Being a Wallflower in New Zealand, that would just complete everybody who has been patiently waiting for the film, or has read the book.
