The Perks of Being a Wallflower In 1999, MTV premiered Making the Video and The Tom Green Show, their hit reality show The Real World went to Hawaii, and they got a lot of airplay out of that Prince song. You know the one. Oh, and on top of all that, they published The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The Perks of Being a Wallflower The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a coming-of-age epistolary novel by American writer Stephen Chbosky which was first published on February 1, 1999 by Pocket Books. Its narrator is an introverted teenager known as Charlie, who describes his experiences in a series of letters to an anonymous stranger. Set in the early 1990s, the novel follows Charlie through his freshman year of high school in a Pittsburgh suburb. Intelligent beyond his years, he is an unconventional thinker; as the story begins, the reader learns that Charlie is also shy and unpopular. Chbosky took five years to develop and publish The Perks of Being a Wallflower, creating the characters and other aspects of the story from his own memories.
For ESL English Language Learners What is most notable about this funny, touching, memorable novel is the resounding accuracy with which the author captures the voice of a boy on the brink of adulthood. Charlie is a freshman. And while's he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. He's a wallflower--shy and introspective, and intelligent. We learn about Charlie through the letters he writes. Charlie encounters the same struggles that many kids face in high school--how to make friends, the intensity of a crush, family tensions, a first relationship, exploring sexuality, experimenting with drugs--but he must also deal with his best friend's recent suicide.
