* HigherUnderstandingThroughDrugs: The protagonist goes to a house party, and eats a cannabis brownie without knowing what's in it. Soon after, the otherwise quiet and reserved character is sitting in a lotus position babbling all sorts of stuff, some of it silly, [[EruditeStoner some of it quite insightful]]. As a result of this, he gains a bunch of new friends.

The narrator, 16-year-old Charlie, is just starting high school as a freshman, having been held back a couple of years due to emotional trauma in his past, and subsequent hospitalization. The novel primarily concerns Charlie's adventures in the '91-'92 school year, and is written as an EpistolaryNovel, a collection of letters Charlie is writing to a friend-of-a-friend who he was told would be a good listener. Charlie, who doesn't excel at much except reading, seems to be off to a bad start before two seniors, step-siblings Patrick and Sam, take him under their wing. And so begins Charlie's adventures into school, literature, dating, SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll, teen pregnancy, suicide, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the]] ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''.
