And then suddenly everything changes and you are a freshman in High School. High School. Those ackward four years where you are obliged to pick a group, the teather click, the jocks, the mean cheerleaders, the punks… and you realize you dont fit anywhere. That is how Charlie feels. Shy and introverted the star from The Perks of Being a Wallflower writes letters to a stranger telling his life, the way he meets two people, whom eventualy become his best friends and change his life.

Over the course of the school year he has new experiences in life with new friends, and with those friends tries to over come some troubling things from his past.
