Sorry this is a little late; dA has been acting wonky for me the last couple of days, but I think it's fixed now! On to the discussion!
How are you enjoying the book so far? As of now, you should be halfway through the novel! The discussion questions will go below, but first...
And now, the questions!
- What do you think being a wallflower is? Do you agree with Bob's definition?
- Who did you identify with the most? Did you see parts of yourself in any one specific character?
- THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER has been included on the American Library Association’s annual “10 Most Frequently Challenged Books” list five times in the past ten years. What are your thoughts on the issue of censorship?
Don't forget about our prizes!
We've got two great books to give to the top participant this month! Thanks so much to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers and Cinco Puntos Press. We're giving away a copy of PLAY ME BACKWARDS

We'll see you at the END OF MONTH DISCUSSION JOURNAL. Again we're trying out a new method this month to see if participation goes up! I can't wait to see you all there and hear what you think about the whole book!
