The book was made into a film in 2012, starring Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller and Emma Watson, directed by the author. The story explores topics such as introversion, abuse, drugs, sexuality, and the awkward times of adolescence. The story takes place in a suburb of Pittsburgh during the early 1990s, Charlie's freshman year in a high school. Charlie is the eponymous wallflower of the novel. He is an unconventional thinker, and as the story begins he is shy and unpopular.
