Sam needs to improve her SAT scores to have a better chance of being accepted to Pennsylvania State University, so Charlie offers to tutor her, which improves her scores. At Christmas, she gives him a vintage typewriter to thank him. They discuss relationships, and Charlie reveals he has never been kissed. Sam reveals that her first kiss was at age 11 by her father's boss. He reveals that his Aunt Helen was also sexually assaulted as a child, but claims that she was "able to turn her life around". Sam tells Charlie she wants his first kiss to be from someone who loves him, and kisses him.

Brad shows up to school with bruises on his face after being caught by his father having sex with Patrick. Brad claims he was jumped and beaten up, and distances himself from Patrick, calling him a "faggot." In anger, Patrick punches him, causing him to retaliate. Brad's friends begin beating Patrick, preventing Sam from intervening, but Charlie forcefully intervenes, then blacks out. Upon recovering, he finds he has bruised knuckles and Brad's friends are incapacitated. Sam and Patrick express their gratitude to Charlie, and the three become friends again.

The story began when Chbosky was in school, evolving from another book on which he was working.[10] In that book he wrote the sentence, "I guess that's just one of the perks of being a wallflower", which led him to realize "that somewhere in that ... was the kid I was really trying to find."[10] Chbosky began writing the novel in the summer of 1996 while he was in college,[14] and within ten weeks he completed the story.[10] He rewrote it into two more drafts, concluding the published version in the summer of 1998.[14]

His caring English teacher, who encourages Charlie to call him Bill, notices Charlie's passion for reading and writing, and acts as a mentor by assigning him extracurricular books and reports. Although he is a wallflower, Charlie is befriended by two seniors: Patrick and Sam. Patrick is secretly dating Brad, a football player, and Sam is Patrick's stepsister. Charlie quickly develops a consuming crush on Sam and subsequently admits this to her. It is revealed that Sam was sexually abused as a child, and she kisses Charlie to ensure that his first kiss is from someone who truly loves him.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower has appeared six times on the American Library Association's list of 10 most-frequently-challenged books for its content.[13][28] A Wisconsin school board refused to ban the book, angering local parents. The Glen Ellyn District 41 school board in suburban Chicago unanimously voted to reinstate the novel after it was removed from eighth-grade classrooms at Hadley Junior High School because of a parent's objection to its sexual content.[29] Groups like PABBIS (Parents Against Bad Books in School) work to restrict literature considered "controversial" from being accessed by younger children. The group believes these "bad books" should be moved to the adult section.[30] In 2009, Perks was repeatedly challenged for descriptions of masturbation, sexually explicit conduct, drug use, and talk of suicide, and there have been multiple pushes across the United States to move this literary work from the children and young adults section to the adult section.[31] Parents have raised issues with the novel for its "pornographic" content and "vulgarity," but others have argued that the book deals with real and common teen issues concerned with growing up, so it presents a truthful viewpoint.[32] Issues are also raised surrounding the book's themes of homosexuality, as well as a "glorification" of the use of drugs and alcohol.[33] In an interview, Chbosky said that he knew of two school boards which have banned the book (in Massachusetts and on Long Island).[13] Since he "didn't write it to be a controversial book,"[13] he was "surprised"[34] by the bans.

Some scenes were omitted from the film adaptation: In the book, Charlie's parents are notified by Bill that Candace is being abused by her boyfriend, to which his parents take direct intervention in the abusive relationship in the book. Also omitted from the film is the side-story where Candace gets pregnant by her abusive boyfriend and is accompanied by Charlie to the abortion clinic. In addition, the poem was deleted from the film before its release. There is a special features section on the DVD with scenes that were shot but didn't make it into the film.[47]

This is a fans site and not affiliated with the book or film. Perks of being a Wallflower is a well-known book written by the American Stephen Chbosky recommends the book along with the New York Times where it was listed as one of the best selling books for over 1 year. The book was also printed in over 30 languages since its publication in 1999. In 2012 the book became a film starring Emma Watson, Ezra Miller and Logan Lerman. The film went onto receive a wide range of awards and accolades. There are important messages in this film including being accepted into society, fitting into social situations like school and teenagers dealing with their sexuality.

Charlie: [voice-over] I don't know if I will have the time to write any more letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn't know what I was talking about or know someone who's gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don't happen. And there are people who forget what it's like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We'll all become somebody's mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.

Parents need to know that The Perks of Being a Wallflower (based on the same-named book by Stephen Chbosky) is an edgy, moving, and layered coming-of-age dramedy that's frank about the troubles and exploits of teenagers. You see them fret over their futures, push back against parental intervention, drink, make out, and use drugs. One girl also blithely jokes about being bulimic. Expect to see couples (both same- and opposite-sex) making out, teens bullying each other, and plenty of swearing. There's also a big reveal about a major, tragic trauma. Harry Potter's Emma Watson co-stars, but this is a much more mature role for her than Hermione.

Author Stephen Chbosky directed this adaptation of his book, and the movie bears the imprint of his careful hands. But it feels strangely modern for a story set in the early 1990s (the cultural references say as much), and Charlie's stunning revelation in the end is hurried, and so doesn't stun as much as it should. The parents, too, feel like afterthoughts, confusing given the caliber of actors playing them (Dylan McDermott, for one). But on the whole, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a gem, and certainly not a wallflower to ignore.

In a recent interview, author Stephen Chbosky clarified the contents of his book that one Wallingford parent deemed controversial, complaining to the school district and objecting to students being allowed to read it. Wallingford Superintendent Salvatore Menzo removed the book from the curriculum in response back in February.

\"I was probably five feet from Governor DeSantis today who made it very clear to me how he felt about some of this stuff,\" Adams said. \"I wondered why so many students had mental health issues and disciplinary problems, bad disciplinary problems. I believe they're being poisoned by what they hear and what they read.\"

As citizens of Denmark we were really surprised to read about the censorship of books in America, because we do not think something like PABBIS could exist in Denmark and we think it is weird that a book like the perks of being a wallflower is banned in some schools.

I would argue that stories like the one told in The Perks of Being a Wallflower can help young people work out their own stories, just like The Breakfast Club helped me and my generation (actually the film still retains a following among the current generation). Going beyond simply having a redeeming message that is tacked on the end of the film, Wallflower and The Breakfast Club maintain a consistent tone that respects and even likes the teen-agers that are being portrayed. This is not always easy to do when it comes to adolescents, but occasionally Hollywood gets it right. 041b061a72
