The perks of being a wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Sthephen Chobsky. Released in 1999 and it’s really an amazing book. The movie doesn’t dissapoint at all. It’s written in set of letters which makes it easier to read. The letters are short. I want to read to my Secondary students right before start each class.

I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn’t try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have. Please don’t try to figure out who she is because then you might figure out who I am, and I really don’t want you to do that. I will call people by different names or generic names because I don’t want you to find me. I didn’t enclose a return address for the same reason. I mean nothing bad by this. Honest.

I just need to know that someone out there listens and understands and doesn’t try to sleep with people even if they could have. I need to know that these people exist.

I think you of all people would understand that because I think you of all people are alive and appreciate what that means. At least I hope you do because other people look to you for strength and friendship and it’s that simple. At least that’s what I’ve heard.
