Quote from the book: “Am I pretty, Charlie?”

We are moving right along with Wallflower Week here at Teen.com, and we are hoping you’re having as much fun as we are, guys! We’ve already given you the low down on Logan Lerman’s Perks of Being a Wallflower character, Charlie and Nina Dobrev’s Candace, but today we give the intro to Mae Whitman‘s alter-ego, Mary Elizabeth.

We’ve seen Mae play the bad ass chick in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and on her show, Parenthood, but we are all sorts of obsessed with Mae’s Mary Elizabeth. She’s a punk rocker who’s a Buddhist vegetarian and has a belly ring and a tattoo, so clearly the girl’s got tons of personality. She’s a senior in Charlie’s tight-knit group of friends, but things go beyond just friend territory between Mary Elizabeth and Charlie in the movie (and the book). But that’s all we’re saying! You’ll have to wait until September 21 to see what else goes down with those two!

Be sure to check out more pics of Mae as Mary Elizabeth in the gallery below, and come back every day this week for more details on the rest of the Perks cast!
