I recently saw Perks of Being a Wallflower, and I really wanted to read it, so I bought that.
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 year 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 mix 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 he 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.
So this is the book I'm going to be reading this month :) It's only short, and it looks to be an easy read. *cross fingers* I'll finish it.
This month pick a book on your shelf, preferably that you haven't read yet or even one that you have, that is perhaps young adult, coming of age, sort of a book.
Or, better still, if you have Perks, read that, and then I have people to talk about it with :)
