Lovereading view...

A powerful and perceptive coming-of-age story, in the tradition of The Catcher in the Rye, from a talented young filmmaker, screenwriter and novelist. This cultish book exploring the sense of alienation that many teens experience and questioning who they are and where they belong is a bit of a marmite read (you will either love it or hate it) - so why not see where you stand?

The film of the book starring Emma Watson and Logan Larman is due for release in September and you can view the trailer for it below.

Synopsis

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower has been made into a film staring Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) and that will be released 5 October 2012. See a trailer below.

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest 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 mix-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. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
