Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop



This is an often challenged book that's favorite of Jess's!




"I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It's like looking at all the students and wondering who's had their heart broken that day...or wondering who did the heart breaking and wondering why."

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

  1. "Do you have a favorite book that's often challenged?" I don't know. I'm sure the usual book challengers would challenge Evelyn Waugh if they ever read him.

  4. I think most of the books that they ban should not be banned. The first books that I read that were banned is after I got out of school and a couple of the books I had read (which were mandatory to read at school) did not make any sense to me.

  6. Man, in a world where Twilight gets challenged for sex and violence (I love Twilight, but that's just hilarious), I'm sure I have lots of banned favorites.
    I'm going with The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. Thanks!

  11. I think the biggest books that are banned are those with progressive ideas, and these were often challenged in college, in my earlier high school and college years, such as the book on Darwin and his theories.

  15. I think the banning should be self-election, I consider myself adult enough to decide for myself!!!
