Charlie is a shy and caring person but also has a lot of guilt.
He is extremely thoughtful, and this leads him to very good and very bad places.
However, through the book she learns to understand Charlie more, and Charlie understands how to respect her and her privacy more.
Charlie's father is quite distant from Charlie as most of his attention is turned towards his eldest son due to his football dreams and sister as she is just about to graduate high school and go to college.
He attended sessions with the guidance counselor to help deal with Michael's death.Although, they seem to have some inside jokes and good times when they are alone.Charlie's mother is not mentioned in the book much.She has long dark hair with fair skin and is notably very pretty (though she doesn't see herself that way and calls herself fat many times).She is known to be dating Ponytail Derick (as told by Patrick) but is soon forced to breakup with him by her parents because he hit her and Charlie witnessed it.
