I'm Jolene. I'm a fan of Stephen Chbosky and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
I could especially relate to his novel because I have something similar. When I was 17 I began to write my favorite rockstar about my dysfunctional home life and general reflections. He saved these letters for me for 9 years then returnd them perfectly preserved.
My experience was much darker than Charlies...or was at least documented a bit darker. The content involves abuse, self-injury, drug experimentation and just plain lonliness. I have a website for my proposed novel where you can find excerpts, artwork and photographs.
I'm always seeking feedback.
