The perks of being a wallflower

Chbosky, Stephen.
Through letters to an unknown recipient, we learn about Charlie, a high school freshman and his friends. This book is well known as a teen classic, and I love it. Many of my friends though, have said that it seemed like the book was just full of every problem a teenager could feasibly deal with it. I get that, but I think that since it's fiction, and all these problems are happening to various people, it's okay. Readers should be able to relate to at least one of the characters. Also, this book is an iconic (at least in my opinion) portrayal of being a teenager.
