The perfect book for the coming-of-age adolescent, Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky is a book that delves into the theme of high schoolers who are trying to find their way into the world. This book causes its readers to plunge deep into their own minds and think about how they interact with and treat others.
