    Stephen Chbosky grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Southern California's Filmic Writing Program. His first film, The Four Corners of Nowhere, premiered at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival and went on to win Best Narrative Feature honors at the Chicago Underground Film Festival. He is the recipient of the Abraham Polonsky Screenwriting Award for his screenplay Everything Divided as well as a participant in the Sundance Institute's filmmakers' lab for his current project, Fingernails and Smooth Skin. Chbosky lives in New York.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower is his first novel.

    Read the cult-favorite coming of age story that takes a sometimes heartbreaking, often hysterical, and always honest look at high school in all its glory. Now a major motion picture starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson,The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a funny, touching, and haunting modern classic.

    The critically acclaimed debut novel from Stephen Chbosky, Perks follows observant “wallflower” Charlie as he charts a course through the strange world between adolescence and adulthood. First dates, family drama, and new friends. Sex, drugs, andThe Rocky Horror Picture Show. Devastating loss, young love, and life on the fringes. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie must learn to navigate those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

    A #1 New York Times best seller for more than a year, an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults (2000) and Best Book for Reluctant Readers (2000), and with millions of copies in print, this novel for teen readers (or “wallflowers” of more-advanced age) will make you laugh, cry, and perhaps feel nostalgic for those moments when you, too, tiptoed onto the dance floor of life.

    • Why I love The Perks of Being A Wallflower

      This is one of the best books that I have read in some time.I was really,really touched by the main character Charlie.I loved what a gentle character he was.The other characters I thought were well developed like Patrick and Sam.I even loved the music that makes up Charlie`s mixed tape to Patrick especially since I am a major Morrissey/Smith`s fan.I guess I see a little Charlie in myself.Besides that I highly recommend this book.I really loved it.It`s my new favorite book.Read it now!

      My favorite book. A sweet and compelling look at what it means to grow up, the changes you face, and the way you begin to view yourself. Everyone can relate to Charlie. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry and it will definately make you think.
