Perks of Being a Wallflower

When Charlie says, "I just need to know that somewhere out there listens and understands and doesn't try to sleep with people even though they could have. I need to know these people exist." you can tell he has been through a lot, and might have depression or feels no one understands him or listens. Even though in the beginning everything is terrible and in the middle, Charlie loses everyone and disconnects from the world, everything is alright in the end cause he says, "And in this moment I swear we are infinite." (page 39) and this is when him, Patrick, and Sam are driving through the tunnel blasting Heroes by David Bowie and Sam is standing the bed of the pickup.
