Gonna hafta put my Meg-crush aside for this one Sep 30, Amerie added it. Yes, that is a thing I actually didn’t know myself about this until I searched it up on the web and it’s a mental illness with many different subcategories. It is a dark and profound, for one of the first things we find out about our main character is that she was in love with Reeve Maxfield, and he died.

Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer

Jam’s classmates include Griffin, good-looking “but in a hostile way”; Sierra, an African-American girl who looks model perfect; Marc, president of the student council and captain of the debate team; and Casey, new to a wheelchair.

This book is about Jam. Return to Book Page. Wolitzer is supposedly a writer of some critical acclaim, so how could she write something so poor? No Saints in Kansas. They grow in emotional maturity, groping their way to defining, and sometimes conquering, their grief.


DJ looks at me strangely. Startled, we all turn at once to see a belxhar in a wheelchair trying to push herself into the classroom. And again – just so much telling, all the way through. Please try again later. The writing is absolutely my favorite part of this book.

Das wurde im Buch nicht wirklich nachvollziehbar geschildert, sondern war mehr ein Umstand. Albeit being surprised and slightly disappointed at the irrelevance of Belzhar to Plath, I will extend on this laterI found the book extremely enjoyable and thought-provoking.

I was thinking recently how this could one day make an amazing movie… I have a feeling I will be thinking about this book and these characters in the weeks ahead. There are only five students in the class, each with their own traumatic experience. Jam is a teenager who has been sent to a special school because of a traumatic experience she went through.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. At times it felt rushed, especially with way the characters relationships developed. I will say that this book was surprising, like the blurb notes, wolifzer.

The study buddy was enormous, orange, and corduroy.

Book review: Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer

I’ve spend the last few days at the gym reading on the elliptical. Balance Trump, cosy up to China, Koreas: Maybe this could ha This wasn’t difficult to read or anything; I moved through it pretty quickly.


I think I’ve just read more than most when it comes to mental health in YA fiction. The previous year, the Kesmans had hosted a girl from Denmark who did nothing but wear clogs and smoke weed.


Belzhar is a mind-blowing read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from cover to cover and I’m not sure if it’s possible but I would love a second book.

But it’s a unique and satisfying premise that relies enough on Plath’s original work to introduce the themes but does most of the heavy lifting itself to develop each character, their growth and ultimately their conclusions.

I suddenly really want to know what happened to her.

Das muss ich auch definitiv irgendwann nochmal lesen. He and I just tended to see the world the same way. She could still be fast asleep qolitzer now, wanting everyone to go away, just belxhar I do. Sometimes, little things that would kind of bother me in a different book, I made allowances for because this book wasn’t actua Funny – I just looked at a bunch of reviews about this book on Goodreads – and was actually surprised to find so many people that DIDN’T like it!!!!!!
