The Perks of Being a Wallflower
While reading this book, I found a lot of thing in the book that can be relatable to my life. In the book, Charlie father make a statement saying, “There are other a lot of people who have it worse”. This is a very true statement in which my father says to me a lot. He always tells me to appreciative what I have and never which for someone else life.   This advice has helped me out on being grateful for having the life and the love of my family, and so to me it don’t matter whatever the situation or problems might be in life, as long as I have life within me, I am grateful.

Journal #2
In the book, Charlie’s sister, dated a boy who abused her. It said in the book that the reason why the boy abused the girl was because she provoked him. In many case people would argue with the fact that the girl started it first by provoking him, while others might say he shouldn’t have never hit her, in my opinion it shouldn’t matter whether you’re being provoked or not, he should have never raised his hands on her. Abuse it a serious case, it don’t matter whether it mentally or physically, nobody should ever have to go through something like that.  

Journal #3
Different people have different opinions about what qualities a good friend should be. Maybe someone would say a good friend should be caring, trustworthy, supportive, patient, and so on. But as for me, I think there are three most important qualities of a good friend should have which are reliability, and honesty, and being helpful. If someone has these three qualities I will consider him or her to be my good friend, and fortunate for me my best friend Amy has all this good qualities and so does Charlie. He found a great friend in Sam and Patrick. In the book they played a good friend to Charlie even though they were older than him. I think everybody can relate on having great friends as Charlie has with Sam Charlie and Patrick....
