    Synopsis 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. This haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs. passion marks the stunning debut of a provocative new voice in contemporary fiction: The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course 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. Through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting coming-of-age story, a powerful novel that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up. ;;My absolute favorite book of all time. Without a doubt.

    Coming in at number 10 on the list of most frequently challenged books of 2007 is this novel composed as a series of letters written by high school freshman Charlie. Charlie's life is drama-laden and he indulges in it as only a sensitive adolescent can. There's not an issue that doesn't come up, creating lots of stuff for people to object to: language, sex, and homosexuality among them.
