In honor of Banned Books Week, we are celebrating frequently challenged and banned literature. Today’s featured book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Here is a brief passage from the book.
It’s kind of like when you look at yourself in the mirror and you say your name. And it gets to a point where none of it seems real. Well, sometimes, I can do that, but I don’t need an hour in front of a mirror. It just happens very fast, and things start to slip away. And I just open my eyes, and I see nothing. And then I start to breathe really hard trying to see something, but I can’t. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, it scares me.
