Revue de presse

Tip Sheet Quotes :
"A coming of age tale in the tradition of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE and A SEPARATE PEACE... [Chbosky's] poignant reflections on life, love and friendship are often inspirational and always beautifully written." USA Today
"Charlie's loving instincts are very strong. Again and again throughout the book he exhibits pure wisdom we all like to read about and wtiness. And Stephen Chbosky doesn't let us down. The language is plain and springy and blunt...In this culture where adolesence is a dirty word, I hope nothing bad ever happens to this [protagonist]." LA Times

"Charlie, his friends and family are palpably real...[he] develops from an observant wallflower into his own man of action...This report on his life will engage teen readers for years to come." School Library Journal, starred review
"Chbosky captures adolescent angst, confusion, and joy as Charlie reveals his innermost thoughts while trying to discover who he is and whom he is to become. Intellectually precocious, Charlie['s]...reflections...are compelling. He vacillates between full involvement in the crazy course of his life and backing off completely. Charlie is a likeable kid whose humor laced trials and tribulations will please both adults and teens." Booklist
"Chbosky adds an upbeat ending to a tale of teenaged angst the right combination of realism and uplift to allow it on high school reading lists... [the protagonist] oozes with sincerity, rails against celebrity phoniness, and feels an extraliterary bond with his favorite writers (Harper Lee, Fitzgerald, Kerouac, Ayn Rand, etc.)... A plain written narrative suggesting passivity, and thinking too much, lead to confusion and anxiety." Kirkus

Présentation de l'éditeur

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

Quatrième de couverture

'I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It's like looking at all the students and wondering who's had their heart broken that day … Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why.'
