Summary/ Short Description:
Charlie is a Freshman and while he’s not biggest the geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, 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 mixed 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 Charlie 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.
Another book that is totally out of my comfort zone. I must tell you though this book is so real. I mean you know that this can happen to anyone. One person might be actually undergoing this state right now. And that I totally relate to Charlie when you know he was just this person observing everything, give all the opportunity to others and not yourself. I totally know how that feels. However, this book made my brain go in circles that sometimes I had to go back another day (since the book is written in diary/letter form) just to fully understand what was happening. But I love how the book was written, due to the fact that it was unique. But this book just kept me going in circles with all what happened to Charlie. I still liked the book though. I didn’t love it but I liked it. So it was okay for me.
Review: 3.5 out of 5 :)
