Charlie is the main character of Perks of Being a Wallflower. Before he met his friends-Sam and Patrick- he spent alot of time reading and spending time to himself. He avoidedg social get to gethers and instead he remained at home. But when he met his friends, Sam and Patrick, Charlie stepped out of his comfort zone alittle bit. He became more loud and outgoing when he was around his friends. He felt like he didnt have to pretend around them and he liked that. "...and in that moment i swear we were infinite" (chbosky pg. 57) One thing that never changed about charlie was that he is a very good analyser. "Bridget who is crazy" (chbosky pg. 2) "Carl who is nice to everyone" (chbosky ph. 2) He would analyze people from the start and that is one of the unique characteristics of Charlie.
