This is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school.
More intimate than a diary, Charlie's letters are singular and unique,
hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may
not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares.
Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him
on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates
and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs,
and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song
