The Perks of Being a Wallflower, published in 1999, is that book for the Millennial generation. In this complex and controversial novel, the narrator Charlie tells the story of his freshman year through a series of letters to an unnamed friend. Every modern teenage topic makes an appearance—suicide, loneliness, jealousy, experimentation—and the author’s nuanced and delicate style makes for a compelling read.
On September 21, the film version of Perks hits theaters, with a cast that will make young readers swoon. Emma Watson, of Harry Potter fame, and Logan Lerman, from the Percy Jackson franchise, star in this high school drama. Since the author, Stephen Chobsky, wrote the screenplay and is directing the film, it's sure to be true to the original story. Before you see the movie, reacquaint yourself with this modern classic—or delve in for the first time—on NOOK.
