For those interested in "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky

A site where you can join the fanlisting (but do little else) -

A quiz that tells you which "The Perks..." character you are -'The%20Perks%20of%20Being%20a%20Wallflower'%20character%20are%20you%3F/

And for those who haven't read it or would just like a review on it -

The link above's:

"This book has been compared to The Catcher in the Rye and A Separate Peace, but it is not a tale of a depressed, angst-ridden teenager in search of himself while criticizing the rest of the world. Rather, it is the narrative of a unique young "wallflower," one who "sees things ... [keeps] quiet about them ... and [understands]," and looks for an honest world to live in."

Charlie, the protagonist, has to deal with some harsh stuff and I think that he faces it the way anyone would. That's why this book is easy to relate to; everyone feels like an outsider sometimes, everyone feels insecure, everyone gets lonely, everyone is confused, despite his or her position in the social echelon. Everyone feels what Charlie feels. Charlie doesn't always know how to act or what to say, but he survives. He is a perfect hero and an imperfect hero at the same time, that's why this is a great book.
