The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Perhaps the ultimate coming-of-age story, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a superb tale of growing up and accepting yourself. Read it and understand that it’s fine to be different, no matter what stage of life you’re in. Also, after seeing how Charlie is helped by the books that Bill (his English teacher) gives him, you’ll have a new faith in bibliotherapy (and a longer reading list!) – Lucy
