SimonTEEN is Giving Away a Copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is a teen book that is often challenged or banned at schools in the US. Reasons given range from graphic descriptions of teenage sex, drug use, homosexuality, obscene or child pornography, to bestiality. Now it's been made into a movie, releasing nationwide October 5 and in limited release on September 28. In celebration, SimonTEEN is giving away a copy of the book.

You enter over on facebook and can also read an excerpt and watch the movie trailer on facebook. For more information about the movie, check out its official site.


Book Blurb (from goodreads):
standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective…but there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. since its publication, stephen chbosky’s haunting debut novel has received critical acclaim, provoked discussion and debate, grown into a cult phenomenon with over a million copies in print, and inspired a major motion picture.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.

    1. I didn't realize that facebook had a limit to the number of pages you could like. As far as I know, facebook is the only way to enter. I'm sorry. :(
