The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of those books I like more each time I reread it. It is novel unlike any other I've read. It gives the reader insight to teenager Charlie's state of mind. As a teenager myself I could relate with Charlie and share the emotions he felt as I read the book. It is a book for teenagers who sometimes feel,"both happy and sad and (are) still trying to figure out how that could be." It is a coming-of-age novel and in my opinion, a modern classic.
