The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Banned Books Week, Mrs. Knight
We did Perks Of Being a Wallflower for Banned Books Week. The reason we did this book is because it was challenged for the gay/lesbian activity , sexual abuse, and drug use. We feel that this book was challenged because somebody thought that it was offensive to them or they felt a different way about it. Yes, there is have some suggestive situation in it but in this book the characters are just young people finding their way in life. They learned that it's okay to be different and that you don't have to be like everybody else.We may not know what somebody feels like when they are different but as Charlie said in the book "Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite." He learned not to live life in the past and that you can be different.
