To begin with, his parents have always had high hopes that their son will become a telephone operator. When he gets expelled he starts thinking that he won’t be a success to his parents, because he won’t graduate and succeed in his dream job. Therefore, the “it” is his hope.

The school was a charter school teaching grades 6-12. I had briefly transferred out for my first semester to play football at another school. To make a long story short I started hanging out with the wrong crowd and went from a straight “A” student to a 2.3 gpa. My parents immediately pulled me, made some phone calls and I was right back to my old stomping grounds. It wasn’t a stereotypical “love at first sight” in fact it was a kind of dull interaction.
“Dear friend, I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn’t try to sleep with that person at the party even though you could have.” This is the first line of the book, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This line was written by the main character, fifteen year old Charlie. Right before the commencement of high school, Charlie was trying to cope with the suicide of his friend, Michael. He tried to lessen the anxiety and fear of starting high school alone, so he began to write letters to a stranger to help him. Throughout the story we never find out where he lives, or to whom he’s writing, but we did get the opportunity to understand his troubles.
In the text, Johnny comes home after getting a good report from school and his foster mother and sister tell him that he is not going to be living with them anymore. “Now.

Drew broke the news to her and explained that the guy had requested for her to make the delivery.
I thanked her for the ride and went to unlock the door. After realizing that I completely forgot my key, I felt like a bigger moron. I waited until 3:30 because that was when my mom would come home with my brother. I told her everything that happened in my day at school. I was hesitant to tell her about what happened after school with my crush because I thought she would be completely shocked that I would do something like that.
When walking in the door, my mom told us that she and my dad needed to have their taxes done that night and that we had to go with them. Jake and I begged to stay home, but our parents did not buy it. When my dad arrived home from work, we jumped in the truck and left. Even though it was only a half hour ride it felt like we had been driving forever. We arrived to an unknown town at a random house that I did not recognize.
I hate summer camp. My names jack and this is how it all began. Mom was saying it is a good way to experience having a time on my own and staying outside by myself because in the future when I go to college I have to do everything on my own so I had to do it I thought it was just going to be as normal as school can be but alas I didn’t know what was going to happen until it hit me there.
