Plot Comparison

In all honestly both the book and the movie were amazing. Both are worth your time however we would suggest reading the book before seeing the movie. In order to know all the details of the story and the background information, so that you can fully appreciate how well they recreated the book. There are some things left out but the director did a good job of filling in the blanks.
In short, we approve of both
interpretations. ~Ryan Kerr &

Main Characters
Charlie is a freshman in high school. He lives in his own world and spends his life watching people. He learns the perks of being a wallflower through his outrageous highs and depressing lows, literally (Charlie suffers from depression). He writes letters to an anonymous person about what's going on in his life. He's extremely lonely and emotional, he's often crying. He's a loner who blends into the background, but when he befriends Patrick he joins a whole new friend group, the "outcasts". This including Sam who he has a crush on.
Sam was Charlie's second friend. She is the step sister of Patrick and a senior at the high school. She is rather laid back with a wild free spirited side. She is incredibly loyal to her friends and has never hesitated to be there for someone who cares about her. During her early youth she experienced a traumatizing experience with a friend of her fathers. Which lead to her hardcore partying with seniors who treated her poorly when she reached high school. She was known for getting drunk and sleeping around. She made some poor decisions but is ending her cycle of stupidity.
Patrick was Charlie's first new friend since the death of his former best friend Michael. They meet through shop class but become friends at the first football game when Charlie greets him as "Patrick" instead of "Nothing." He is the step-brother of Sam and has a thing for the quarterback. Throughout the story we learn more and more about Patrick and his complicated relationship.
