The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I finished reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower“. I like that book a lot. I read it my junior year at SAAS. Jeff Hanway listed as one of his favorite books on his Facebook profile. So I read it and finally finished it today. It’s really a great book and an awesome coming-of-age story that everyone should read. Here’s one of my favorite passages:

“Charlie, I told you not to think of me that way nine months ago because of what I’m saying now. Not because of Craig. Not because I didn’t that you were great. It’s just that I don’t want to be somebody’s crush. If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it, too. I want them to be able to do whatever they want around me. And if they do something I don’t like, I’ll tell them.”

Yea. Such a great book. It makes me nostalgic for the old high school days. Sigh.
