45 I was sent this book by Penguinteen n exchange for an honest reviewYou know those books where you just go Peggy Deans Guide to Nature Drawing and Watercolor into them expecting ehhh but come out of them like holy heck this was amazing and changed my mind set yeah well this was one of those books for me I found out this novels greatly Foursome inspired by Sylvia Plath s book Bell Jar which I have not read but now really really want to We follow Jam a young girl whose first love died She s struggling with her situation ands put Corduroys Garden in a boarding school for fragile highlyntelligent teens In her english class they re given journals to write What Is the Story of Scooby-Doo? in and when they begin to writen them they re transported to Belzhar an My Father Left Me Ireland idyllic world At first I was not liking the main character becauset seemed like she was one of the many YA main characters who feel like they re nothing without a boy but there s actual reasoning behind why she feels this wayI enjoyed all the side characters and their stories The author did such an amazing job with showing the many different types of losesI loved the setting of the english class and how close all the students got through writing and sharing their experiences Belzhar was truly magical It s definitely a book that I ll be thinking about for sometimeCANT WAIT TO MEET MEG WOLITZER FRIDAY It took me months to get through this one I kept forgetting I was even reading Antisemitism it so let s just sayt wasn t a memorable read for me It Stumbling Giants is uniue don t get me wrong but I just didn t really care about any of these characters Then when the magical element gotntroduced Sabrina Corina it made the book even lessnteresting not as I had hopedOk so let s start with this premise After her boyfriend dies Jam gets sent to boarding school for troubled teens and n one of her classes she s given a journal that to her surprise sends her to a magical place whenever she writes n Patient Safety Ethics it This places free of pain and heartache t s a world where the tragedy that brought them to this school has not happened Although this might sound cheesy I thought t was a really creative premise with tons of potential I expected a lot of depth and soul searching but Kent Island instead I found myself getting bored while w 35 stars Reading this so soon after having read Sylvia Plath s The Bell Jar for the first time was annteresting experience If you can t tell from the title Wolitzer pulls heavily from Plath s novel but I wouldn t say this story Brides, Mourners, Bacchae is necessarily a remake or rip off of the originalIn Belzhar we follow Jam Gallahue a sixteen year old girl whos sent to a school for students with Born to Run issues whether they suffer from emotional physical or psychological trauma On her first day at The Wooden Barn the school Jam finds out she sn a class called Special Topics n English a class that s only taught when the professor Mrs feels like teaching New Worlds for All it and only for a select group of students Jam along with four other students at the schools selected to participate and read Plath s novel and poetry over the course of one semesterThroughout the course of the novel and the students semester we come to learn about each character to see them deal with their trauma and grow close to one another Alongside that The Three Coffins (Dr. Gideon Fell, is a plot surrounding something called Belzhar which I won t disclosen this review But Generic it s a uniue and satisfying premise that relies enough on Plath s original work tontroduce the themes but does most of the heavy lifting Campus Sexual Assault itself to develop each character their growth and ultimately their conclusionsI found Jam s situation to be the least compelling from the outside compared to the other studentsn her class but because we see everything through her eyes I came to really enjoy her narrative It could ve easily become something off putting but Wolitzer manages to create a vivid character that you can root forIt s not the most mind blowing book ever but Radical Pacifism in Modern America if you re a fan of Plath or at least have read The Bell Jar before I can definitely recommend this one It s got a great diverse cast of characters without feeling liket s checking off boxes and they each have an Bioinformatics Methods important story to tell perhaps you ll find one that you can relate to This story makes a mockery of love emotionalntegrity and mental What Doesn't Kill Us: how freezing water, extreme altitude, and environmental conditioning will renew our lost evolutionary strength illness andt s glamoured by unmagical magical realism a sophisticated literary style and a twist upon which everything else hinges I despise feeling manipulated much as many of the characters The Impossible Climb in this book wouldf they had any sense especially when the plot and writing are not particularly remarkable and when the characters and relationships are so Magic in the Air incredibly shallow and meaningless There s an attempt tonterject a point to the story A Casa dos Espíritos in the end I suppose butt s only a footnote to this elaborate heartless exercise La decadencia de la mentira y otros ensayos in writing techniue An advance copy was provided by the publisher PS our own Kim wrote a thorough real review with spoilers detailing why the twists so very problematic here also very much like karen s balanced and very kind review If you re already skeptical about a person someone being Bailey Loves Essential Clinical Anatomy in deep dark mourning lasting a year over someone they knew for only a few weeks then thiss definitely not going to be a book for you Although normally that would put me off I really really wanted this book to work Considering Wolitzer The Guy Who Died Twice (Detective D.D. Warren, is well establishedn adult literary fi Forced predictable patronizing trite Just no I have never been so disappointed Remus (Marius Brothers in an author I kept reading hoping she would redeem herself Nope Its astonishing how mediocre and Turning Points immature this books Wolitzer The Secret Life of Theater is supposedly a writer of some critical acclaim so how could she write something so poor The plottself s ok I guess a bunch of students with various psychological problems are learning to deal with them by experiencing their ssues The Secret Message of Jesus in a sort of hypnotic world of Belzhar really But EVERYTHING about this storys superficial exploration of grief and guilt po.
