Why should this book be in the 10th grade curriculum?

Charlie’s character is the perfect mix of teenage awkwardness, low self-esteem, and the push to be something more because inside, you know you are something more. I personally agree that this book should be in the curriculm because it is about growing up and growing strong. It is about friendships that don’t relay on status or stereotypes. It is a book I think we all need to read in our lifetime and sit back and bask in what true friendship is. It is heartbreaking at times and it is heartwarming.
