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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
By the end of the book you really feel like you got to know all of the characters and their personalities.
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 was written in a way that captures the reader's interest and helps you relate to the main character, Charlie.
I liked the book, although I didn't find it very intriguing or interesting. It didn't really have a theme (That I could see at least). But it was a fun cute book. Read morePublished 11 hours ago by Tracy Purrenhage
