The Perks of Being a Wallflower Part 1, Chapter 2 Summary

How It All Goes Down

September 7, 1991

  • Charlie doesn't like high school for a few reasons:
    1. The cafeteria is called the "Nutrition Center." That's like calling a rollercoaster the throw-up machine. Kind of.
    2. Susan, who used to date Michael, acts dumber in high school just to attract boys.
    3. Charlie is being bullied by a kid named Sean.
  • To remedy the last problem, Charlie beats the snot out of Sean.
  • Lucky for Charlie, someone tells Mr. Small the truth about what happened, so Charlie doesn't get detention. Whew.
