This started out wise, quirky and highly entertaining. I adored the nostalgia I felt because the year the letter's Charlie wrote are the same year I graduated high school. It reeled me in deep on the difficult real issues that face adolecents but in an easy approachable way. To me Charlie wasn't a wallflower he was so brave to reach into himself so honestly and face his demons and find a place of forgivness and blamelessness. Being a mom this spoke to me at so many levels of characters invloved. Somewhere there is this little Charlie soul is in us all.
