Publisher's Summary

If life were fair, Jam Gallahue would still be at home in New Jersey with her sweet British boyfriend, Reeve Maxfield. She'd be watching old comedy sketches with him. She'd be kissing him in the library stacks.

She certainly wouldn't be at The Wooden Barn, a therapeutic boarding school in rural Vermont, living with a weird roommate, and signed up for an exclusive, mysterious class called Special Topics in English.

But life isn't fair, and Reeve Maxfield is dead.

Until a journal-writing assignment leads Jam to Belzhar, where the untainted past is restored, and Jam can feel Reeve's arms around her once again. But there are hidden truths on Jam's path to reclaim her loss.

From New York Times best-selling author Meg Wolitzer comes a breathtaking and surprising story about first love, deep sorrow, and the power of acceptance.

    Story
    "Not really about Sylvia Plath"

    So much promise, so much potential, so spot on. Then late in the book: poof, the plot twist took me right out of it and took the book away from what the cover promised. Still, it had some great stuff on Sylvia Plath.

    Story
    "Y/A Story, Suitable for Adults"

    Pretty good story, with good narration. Jorjeana Marie had the right voice for the 1st person narration. Unfortunately, the big "twist" in the plot was no surprise AT ALL. (Hint: if you've read "We Were Liars", this is quite similar).

    "different"

    this book was very interesting. I definitely didn't see the plot twist coming. I would've loved to have had a teacher like Mrs Q

    "highly entertaining; great story"

    wolitzer has done it again! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the characters and the narrator was wonderful. the characters well very well fleshed out and sympathetic. not once did I feel compelled to scream out of irritation of the over used emo or horribly narcissistic teen trope. this was simply the best.

    "Great Story"

    Very quick moving story. Did not see Jam's story wrapping up in the way it did. Really awesome story.
