Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer book coverIf life were fair, Jam would be at home with her boyfriend Reeve, watching old comedy sketches. But life isn’t fair. Reeve is dead, and Jam finds herself at a therapeutic boarding school called ‘The Wooden Barn’, an institution dedicated to take care of emotionally fragile teenagers.

When one of the teachers assigns a journal-writing assignment for the teens, Jam finds herself in ‘Belzhar’, a place where she can return to a time before the traumatic events in her life.

“Riveting story! Wolitzer has created a realm like no other. I ‘ve never finished a book so fast. This is a must-read for fans of Sylvia Plath!”

-Ana G.

Belzhar, by Meg Wolitzer, is shelved in the young adult fiction section.
