The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. The only friend he had killed himself, forcing him to face high school alone. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love, until a repressed secret from his past threatens to destroy his newfound happiness.

We meet at Sunset Foods on the 2nd floor and your first drink is on us. The first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Services desk get a free copy of the book.

Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12th grade.
