the perks.

when i was 15, my favorite book was the perks of being a wallflower by stephen chbosky.  at 15, it really spoke to me–it wasn’t my life but it allowed me to look at aspects of my life that i probably would not have otherwise.  i decided to reread it to see if it still resonated with me 8 years later.  and it definitely did.  being older and wiser, i was able to see charlie’s innocence and naiveté and also how malleable i was at that age–i definitely took a lot of the book at face value when it wasn’t meant to be.  the story is sweet and heart-wrenching at the same time.  it is written in charlie’s hand and the writing is very elementary which was great for me at 15, but now, some parts were laughable.  despite this, there are some fabulous passages in the book that beautifully describe life and its trials.

because things change. and friends leave. and life doesn’t stop for anybody.
