I thought I would do a Waiting on Wednesday this week, and possibly do some more in the future whenever I'm interested in a new release.
Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
Release Date: September 30, 2014
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.
Why I'm Excited:
I love, love, love The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath which this novel connects too. I know the main character studies Plath's works in her English class, and the tittle of the book is meant to sound like The Bell Jar. I have been seeing some good reviews of this book by those who have read it early, so I have high hopes for it.
I love when Young Adult literature can appeal to those who read Classics, and since I love both genres, I'm hopefully going to enjoy this book.
