The Summary of the Novel
"The reason I wrote this letter is because I start high school tomorrow and I am really afraid of going." (Chbosky 6)
"But because things change. And friends leave. And life doesn't stop for anybody." (Chbosky 145)
"She kissed me. It was the kind of kiss that I could never tell my friends about out loud. It was the kind of kiss that made me know that I was never so happy in my whole life. " (Chbosky 70)
"[Bill] made tea, and I felt like a grown-up." (Chbosky 106)
"My sister was counting on me, and this was the first time anyone ever counted on me for anything." (Chbosky 118)
Charlie's Sister
"It's great that you can listen and be a shoulder to someone, but what about when someone doesn't need a shoulder. What if they need the arms or something like that? You can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can't. You have to do things." (Chbosky 200)
"I'm not sure if I will have the time to write anymore letters because I might be too busy trying to "participate"". (Chbosky 213)
