Few books have had such a gripping and accurate portrayal of adolescence than The Perks of Being a Wallflower Stephen Chbosky. Following the journal of a boy named Charlie and his experiences, it tackles the very real problems that are faced while growing up and adulthood. While beautifully crafted, the book also ranks as one of the most banned books in American libraries.
Due to its description of drug use, sex, and violence (yes it deals with everything and yes I use the Oxford comma) it has been banned in many places.
Despite this we carry it in FIC CHB, and believe that it is always important for you to find a book that relates to you, and we will always help you find it. --HP
