The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

I went and saw this

I loved it.
I read this book when I was in high school and I remember feeling like it was epic.
And at 30, I still feel like it is epic.
There is a line in the movie “We accept the love we think we deserve.”. Yeah. Seriously can relate to that. Super deep and beautiful line. It made me think of the fact that we are all just bumping along, doing our best, trying to be loved, and fighting it the whole time . . . so see it before it isn’t in the theatre. It is so worth it . . .

    It is completely unique in its own right too!

    The book is amazing I have read it so many times. I’m glad to hear that the movie is too. I can’t wait for it to be released here

    congratulations Allison!


    Hi Allison.
    My daughter and my wife went to see the film and they loved it.
    A film that deals with subtlety and humor of human behavior.
    I can not wait to see it on DVD.
    Thank you for sharing with your fans.
    I hope to see you in new projects.

    I recently worried this line to my beautiful 34 year old sister, who is suffering from cancer and does not believe she deserves the care people are giving her.

    Hey again again Allison,
    By “fighting it the whole time” do you mean fighting the idea of being loved? Can you please elaborate?

    I have been watching reruns of Smallville for a while and found your site recently The wild co-incidence is that earlier that same day a teen friend of mine recommended this book to me as her favorite. With both of you enjoying it so much, I found a copy and just finished it. Epic is a good word for it. I enjoyed it a lot and since I am also a writer I know I can be very critical of other authors. Again, I loved this book and thank my young friend for her recommendation and yours as well. Now I just have to find the movie. I am much older than you both but some books cross all age boundaries.

    Much luck in all you do Allison and, oh yes, Clark definitely picked the wrong girl. What was he thinking?!!! I am a Cloey fan forever.
