Stephen Chbosky - The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Again another marketing coup because the only reason I read this was because I saw the movie trailer.  The book is a coming of age story.  The story is written in a letter format to some one unknown (probably just us the reader).  Story is one that has been told for every generation.  This one for generation of the 90s and of course has its ups and downs.  The downs being very shocking especially at the end.  The book did have one great character and that is Sam who the letter writer falls for.  Every coming of age tale needs a "Sam".  Good book tough to swallow the ending...
