Stephen Chbosky’s novel is a great example of how the epistolary narrative style can be used powerfully. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is written from the perspective of Charlie, a teenage boy in his first year of high school, who’s writing to an unknown recipient, 'dear friend' as he recounts his year through these letters.

The Coupledom Trap is a thoughtful guide to building better, lasting relationships, and creating homes full of honesty and laughter, instead of pretence and worry. Araim asks the sort of questions that most couples probably avoid: Is it realistic to expect love to last? Does your relationship make your life fun? The book offers radical methods for assessing the true levels of love and commitment.
