The Perks of Being a Wallflower Part 2, Chapter 11 Summary

How It All Goes Down

December 23, 1991

  • Charlie's back on his own because Sam and Patrick have left for the Grand Canyon.
  • He watches kids sledding and has a lot of philosophical thoughts about how they're going to grow up and kiss someone some day—you know, the usual.
  • It seems that Sam's kiss has turned Charlie into quite the philosopher, and he does a lot of ruminating.
  • During all his thinking, Charlie tells us that his birthday is on December 24th. If we had the Internet in 1991, we would have sent him this e-card.
  • To close the letter, Charlie tells us that Bill gave him another book: The Catcher in the Rye. Man, this Bill character is really all about the classics.
