I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. If they like their jobs. Or us. And I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. 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, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report due on top of that. Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why.With the help of a teacher who recognizes his wisdom and intuition, and his two friends, seniors Samantha and Patrick, Charlie mostly manages to avoid the depression he feels creeping up like kudzu. When it all becomes too much, after a shocking realization about his beloved late Aunt Helen, Charlie retreats from reality for awhile. But he makes it back in due time, ready to face his sophomore year and all that it may bring. Charlie, sincerely searching for that feeling of "being infinite," is a kindred spirit to the generation that's been slapped with the label X. --Brangien Davis
Many people think that they can watch movies and get just as much out as if they had read the book.
Charlie has so many different experiences that everyone who reads the book can not only relate to him in some way but can also feel very distant from him.
I found the characters very easy to create a connection with, I thought the book was very well written, and overall, it was a beautiful story.

This book is amazing and touches on all the subjects that are needed to be touched. It almost seems like it may be a clique when you read the cover ,but it is far from it. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Kyla Penick
The same 14 year old suggested this as well.
I was stunned by the authors ability to enter the mind of a child so perfectly.
