Hi readers:

August 25, 1991
Dear friend,

I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand
and didn't try to sleep with that person at that party even though
you could have. Please don't try to figure out who she is because
then you might figure out who I am, and I really don't want you to
do that. I will call people by different names or generic names
because I don't want you to find me. I didn't enclose a return
address for the same reason. I mean nothing bad by this. Honest.
I just need to know that someone out there listens and
understands and doesn't try to sleep with people even if they
could have. I need to know that these people exist.
I think you of all people would understand that because I think
you of all people are alive and appreciate what that means. At
least I hope you do because other people look to you for strength
and friendship and it's that simple.

My friend, everything is going out of my hands.
Problems come in to my life and never come out.

That is how Stephen decided to wrote the book. When you finish this book, it may get you to read more books or to write. In my life that book means a lot, not just because it gave me the impulse to write this blog, it has meaning because it made me realize I am a WALLFLOWER

I love this book and the movie to, but of course I love more the book
Hope you read it, and hope you like it too.
I just wanted to add something, this book is for
