The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - This book also does a great job of explaining how different people growing up go through different things. Yet another reason book banning is ridiculous. Giving teenagers books like this help them realize they aren't alone and that their thoughts and fears aren't unhealthy. It doesn't "put ideas in their heads," believe me Scroggins. They already know offensive language and the definition of masturbation. It takes those ideas and explores them in real-life situations. It is such a safe and effective way to stimulate emotional growth.To see my complete review discussing this book for Banned Books Week, check out my blog: http://theallureofbooks.blogspot.com/2010/09/what-would-scroggins-say-review-perks.html
