The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower


by Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Part 1, Chapter 5 Summary

How It All Goes Down

September 18, 1991

  • Charlie talks about a kid in his shop class named Nothing.
  • That's a very esteem-boosting name, isn't it? Like Dave Pelzer's A Child Called It. Very uplifting.
  • You can check out "Patrick's Character Analysis" for the story behind this term of non-endearment.
  • Nothing's impersonation of Mr. Callahan, the shop teacher, is hilarious according to Charlie. Even Mr. Callahan thinks it's funny.
  • Also, Charlie tells us that his sister asked him for the Autumn Leaves mix tape back.
