The Perks of Being A Wallflower – Novel
Reviewed by Miranda Boyer
I am writing you because you listen and I feel you have been a good friend the past few days as we’ve gotten to know one another. You’ve opened your heart to me and the honestly has been refreshing. There is an old saying about not judging someone until you’ve walked a mile in his or her shoes. I feel like you’ve given me the opportunity to see your life through your eyes and experiences. You are so intelligent, and I can see that you don’t really get credit for that. Let me say this, as I know only two before have said aloud, you are special, and you’re story is one worth sharing.
You have taught me much about emotions, and the importance of being your self, feeling your feelings, and being honest with those around you. You’ve shared your experience with the generosity of love, the meaning of friendship, and how beautiful the innocence of thought and feelings can be.
I hope that you get better, in a perfect world you go on to do wonderful things with you’re life. I hope that someday you are able to show to not only yourself but also others how much you have to offer the world.
Lastly I hope that one day you get the opportunity to love the real Sam, and not just the fictionalized idea in your head of whom she is. If not Sam, then some other beautiful kind human. I hope that one day, you get to love the good and bad and experience that same warmth in return. Someday soon, we will meet again. Until that day, I will share your address with those around me, and I hope that they too can meet and fall in love with you Charlie.
