The New York Times Book ReviewThere s a place where the lost go to be found. 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, signed up for an exclusive, supposedly life-changing class called Special Topics in English that focuses only and entirely on the works of Sylvia Plath. But life isn t fair. Reeve has been gone for almost a year and Jam is still mourning. When a journal-writing assignment leads Jam into a mysterious other world she and her classmates call Belzhar, she discovers a realm where the untainted past is restored, and she can feel Reeve s arms around her once again. But, as the pages of her journal begin to fill up, Jam must to confront hidden truths and ultimately decide what she s willing to sacrifice to reclaim her loss.
