ABOUT THE BOOK Stephen Chbosky's book may be younger than its adolescent protagonist, but it has had an eventful life so far. The Perks of Being a Wallflower has proved to be one of the most controversial novels of recent years - and one of the most popular with its target audience of teenagers. Polymath Chbosky set out to write a very different novel but found that a single line from that first manuscript kept ringing in his head: "I guess that's just one of the perks of being a wallflower.­" This inspired him to develop the idea and the character of Charlie, the "wallflower" of the title. Set in 1991, the epistolary novel takes us through the troubled Charlie's freshman year, and the events leading up to a horrible personal discovery that turns his happier childhood memories upside down. In 1999, MTV acquired the title. Word of mouth made it a near-­instant success, with teenagers devouring its themes of angst, isolation, and ostracisation in high school.

This article describes the release of the film version of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The movie is directed by Stephen Chbosky who wrote the 1999 novel on which the film is based. Chbosky has effectively translated the film to the big screen with the help of actors Logan Lerman (who plays the title character in the Percy Jackson films) and Emma Watson (who stars in the Harry Potter films). The production company successfully petitioned to have the film’s R rating lowered to PG-­13, and it is likely to be a strong draw for today’s teens as well as those who were in high school during the late-­1980’s/early-­1990’s setting of the film.
