As of late, I’ve been culling through recommended works of realistic fiction and compiling a list for a young yet “intelligent beyond his years” patron. While working on this project, I cannot help but think about Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Tonight while piecing together a mixed CD for tomorrow’s road trip to ArtPrize, I was once again reminded of Perks — Charlie’s mixed tape.

Even better… I think Dark Blue by Jack’s Mannequin, a song I added to my iTunes playlist, could possibly be a favorite of Charlie’s, if the story was set later.
