Book of the Month:

Perks of being a wallflower book cover

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is an interesting book centered around "teenage" issues. The main character Charlie goes through times of drug use, depression etc. This contains a unique perspective with a turn. This is a story of what it's like to grow up within highschool. Charlie uses letters to describe his life, but sends them under disquised names for his friends, we may not know his location, or every detail about him, but we know a little bit of the story as it is.

Stephen Chobosky has created a deeply affecting novel that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as... growing up.
