The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Read it. You'll find more of yourself than you think.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower. So excited, this is one of my all time favourite books. But from the pictures I've seen so far it looks like they've kind of just made it into a plain old love story, which it isn't. Have to wait and see.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower : A moving coming of age tale in a series of letters written by the main protagonist Charlie in his freshmen year in high school. It revolves around the people he befriends like Patrick & his teacher Bob along with the girl he likes Sam, his naive older boy crazy sister, the issues of prejudice & homosexuality,drugs & abuse.
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean RhysWhat: Rhys’ famous postcolonial prequel to Jane Eyre investigates race, cultural displacement, and the trope of the “madwoman in the attic.”Why: History is full of madwomen in attics, in all their various permutations, but any investigation of the concept’s literary scope has to start here.
“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” -- Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
