Ten Reasons Why The Perks of Being A Wallflower is Amazing (Book and Movie)

My top ten reasons why The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a must-see movie ( and a must-read) and why it's my favorite. And if you haven't seen it, I suggest you do so now because you have no idea what you're missing out on.

Chapter 1

Ten Reasons

10) The amazing quotes that can be taken from the movie and be applied to real life.
Example: “We accept the love we think we deserve.”
And my favorite: "And in that moment, I swear we are infinite."

9) It shows you you're not alone sometimes

8) The acting is phenomenal

7) It teaches you to be yourself, regardless of what other people think; i.e. Patrick and his outlandish personality.

6) You can see some of yourself in the characters

5) No matter what age, you can relate to what goes on in high school

4) It shows that sometimes being yourself is harder than it looks, but encourages you to be who you are regardless.

3) It tells you that life is hard, but you can get through it

2) Awful things happen to you and other people, and if you're somehow involved, it's not your fault

1) This movie and book can change your life from the time you start the book/movie, to the time you finish them. It gives you a new perspective on life and what's really important, and you start to look at things differently.

These are my reasons why I love the book and the movie, yours may be different than mine, but that's all right. We all see things differently.
And I'll end this with a couple quotes from The Perks of Being a Wallflower

"I am very interested and fascinated how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other."

"I don't know if you’ve ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this. That’s why I’m trying not to think. I just want it all to stop spinning."
