Biannual Bibliothon – Day 7 – Write a Letter to a Character

Hello you all!

Wow, we’re almost here! My reading has been going alright, I’ve been on holiday in Italy so the last 6 posts have been scheduled, so I’ve been fitting in reading where possible! I’ve finished 3 out of the 4 books on my TBR (come on Flame in the Mist!), one of which was The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This challenge couldn’t be more fitting for this book, as it’s written entirely through letters. Therefore, I’m writing a spoiler filled letter today (SPOILERS! Remember that! I warned you!) in response to Charlie’s letters throughout the book.


August 27, 1992

Dear Charlie,

I’m sorry that you’ve been in hospital for the last couple of months. I don’t know who you are, and will never know who you are, but I want you to get better soon. I want to bring up your aunt Helen, but I don’t want to talk about her much. What she did to you was awful, and it’s very good of you not to blame her. If I was you, I don’t think I’d be able to be that good.

I like Sam and Patrick. I think they’re your true friends. True friends make you feel infinite. True friends worry about you. But I do think that you should start telling them what you want and what you need. It would make all of you happier.

I also love Bill. I hope you enjoy his wedding. I hope he always lends you his books and talks to you. I hope he always makes you feel special.

I’ve been feeling infinite lately. I’ve been doing lots of scary things. But I realise that life isn’t just the infinite moments. It’s also the hard moments. But in my head, you don’t have any of those anymore. You, and Patrick and Sam and Bill. You’re all infinite to me.

Love always,

Your friend xx
