This week we cover all of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and get into all sorts of themes of trauma and abuse. This beautifully haunting book paints a vivid picture of adolescence, and Asia enjoys reminiscing on the book while Charles enjoys returning to memories of his own high school. We follow Charlie in his episolary journey as he starts high school and his own infinity. The topics he’s dealing with are heavy, but we watch as he does his best to overcome his past, and be a support to his loved ones.
Next week we will be reading a new book in one week, The Fault in Our Stars.
