Like many of my generation, Perks of Being a Wallflower was the book that defined us. It may have been years since I’ve experienced Charlie’s life, but it’s remained with me. And when I watched the movie trailer, it brought back all those happy memories of the first time I read it.
The film will be a little more light-hearted than the book (less sexuality and drug themes), but I still expect good things from it—especially knowing that Stephen Chbosky, the author, is the scriptwriter and director.
Guess who will be re-reading this book over the summer?
