book club post: the perks of being a wallflower

Post image for book club post: the perks of being a wallflower

so i have finished reading the perks of being a wallflower and i must say that i am so glad we chose this book.  i had never read it before and i found it very moving and full of wisdom that is relevant not just to someone around the age of the narrator (a freshman in highschool) but to anyone of any age.  everyone can relate to the feelings of loneliness, sadness and longing that charlie experiences, and those emotions can occur at any age.  deep down, i think we are all searching for that moment of ultimate freedom and happiness- when you truly feel infinite.   throughout the week i’ll be posting inspirational quotes from the book along with images that it conjured up in my brain…please feel free to share your thoughts on the book in the comments section!

I loved that book, it really changed a lot of thinking about whats important to me. It shows that no ones struggles and problems are more important than anyone elses, and it really was a good book.

Also its interesting because in the book Charlie was a freshman the same time my dad was.
