If 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!”
