With the eagerly anticipated release of the movie of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER By STEPHEN CHBOSKY coming very soon, the people at Simon & Schuster UK have re-released the book with a gorgeous shiny new cover, exclusive to Waterstones.
'Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, caught between trying
to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie is attempting to
navigate through the uncharted territory of high school. The world of
first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of
sex, drugs, and music - when all one requires to feel infinite is that
perfect song on that perfect drive. Standing on the fringes of life
Charlie has a unique perspective of the world around him, but there
comes a time to stop being a wallflower and see what it looks like from
the dance floor. This haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs.
passion has become a modern classic. Charlie's letters are singular and
unique, hilarious and devastating and through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky
has created a deeply affecting story that will spirit you back to those
wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up.'
I for one cannot wait to see this movie & hope the adaptation is as fantastic as it looks. One thing I know for sure is that this new cover ROCKS!!!
