This book is really called Flowers for Algernon, but the cover I read had the name Charly written across the front with one of the letters spelled backwards. I’ve always called it Charly. I read this book in grade 9 or 10 and was amazed by the whole book. It’s written from Charly’s pov and it follows his journey as he is given medication to make him super smart and then his journey back as the meds stop working. It’s heartbreaking and brilliant. And makes you really think about scientific research and its impact on people. Very powerful stuff in this book.
Have you read any other books about scientific research that have scared you? Or inspired you?
