Literature and Writing Quotes in The Perks of Being a Wallflower

How we cite our quotes: (Part.Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #4

Sometimes, I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book. (1.10.2)

Charlie's taking empathy to the extreme here. And really, we don't want him to be Holden Caulfield. He's already depressed enough.

Quote #5

On that piece of white paper, Sam wrote, "Write about me sometime." (2.10.26)

Little does she know that practically every letter Charlie writes is about Sam.

Quote #6

I'm going to write it down because maybe if I do I won't have to think about it. And I won't get upset. (2.15.11)

What do you think? Is writing truly cathartic like that?
