Review

I can truly say that this book was life changing in the way that it makes you see life. This book was full of twists and turns that led to an amazing plot and finale. This book is probably most recommended to the younger generations that enjoy reading, or even just want to pick up a book for a change. I began reading this book and was completely blown away by the authors words and ideas. The specific elements that I enjoyed in the book was the way the author ordered the events that took place. The easy to understand timeline mixed with the meaningful words of the author made for a great story with an even greater meaning. This book was a life changing experience. The Perks of Being a Wallflower give a keen insight to how life is viewed from an outside source and how life never stops going.

“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” - Stephen Chbosky
