The story I will be introducing will be the story of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. There are many conflicts in this story (as any other novel) but, the main cause and effect I am focusing on in this story is that in the very beginning of the book, the main character, Charlie, his best friend commits suicide. This happened even before the book was so called taking place in the world of Charlie but, it was a major event in the story. It is something that impacted the story tremendously.
The effects of Charlie’s best friend’s death were mostly just impacted on Charlie. In the story, Charlie didn’t have many friends to begin with so this just turned Charlie’s life around right off the bat. This story would have changed a lot if this event didn’t happen. For instance, if his best friend wouldn’t have died, Charlie wouldn’t have made so many new, older friends. If his best friend wouldn’t have died, Charlie wouldn’t be depressed and that is mainly what the story is about. This story would not have been the same without this event occurring.
