This book has been a popular item in the library over the last few months. I found a free copy online and read it last week. It was definitely a quick read, and an interesting story. I am intrigued to see how it will play out in the theaters with the main character crying as often as he did in the story. In today's society we do not often see men or young men brought to tears. The story follows a boy in his freshman year of high school trying to make way with his older brother in college, his older sister, a senior in high school in an abusive relationship and a best friend who committed suicide over the summer. This was a nice coming of age story and I would certainly recommend The Perks of Being a Wallflower to all of the students.
