This has to be one of my favorite books. I still carry it around everywhere when I need some advice. "Charlie", the main protagonist, is a high school freshman whose best friend committed suicide the year before. The name "Charlie" is just his alias, as he doesn't want anyone to know his actual identity. The book is written in a series of letters to an unknown person telling about his life. Set in 1991, the story has elements of the grunge movement of the 90s, featuring lists made by Charlie with the music he listens to, books he reads, and TV shows he watches.

"Perks" isn't for the faint of heart, as it features some adult content. It deals with some of the issues that high school students in the past, present, and most likely future go through during their time at school.
