For the Sixth Gift of December…

…Liz said to me…Perks cover1

Liz works at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester at the register, shelving books, and handling special projects.

“I’m Liz, and I’m currently a graduate student at Lesley University working towards my Master’s in Expressive Arts Therapies.”

Liz’s book recommendation is…

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbowsky

What makes these books a great gift?

I know it’s been made into a movie, but don’t hold it against it! (and the movie actually wasn’t half bad!) This is such a great gift for teens and up. It’s a coming of age story wrought with humor, insight, and quirk. I’ve read the book twice through and then some (I’m about halfway through right now), and it takes on new meaning and new value each time I’ve read it. And for those picky readers, it’s a quick, short, wonderful, heart-tugging read.

 

“And in that moment, I swear, we were infinite.”
