"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is without a doubt in my top five list of favorite books read in high school. It spread like wildfire among my group of friends, and I'm pretty sure it's the only novel (besides the Harry Potter series) that I've read more than three times.
Usually I get scared when I find out great books are being adapted for the big screen, but I have high hopes for this movie. For starters, the author of the book, Stephen Chbosky, was a filmmaker before writing "Perks" and directed the film. Also, Emma Watson is in it. So it can't be that bad.
