Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It’s a way to share the upcoming releases that we’re excited about. This week I have chosen Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer. It releases September 30th 2014 in the US, and October 1st 2014 here in Australia.
(US cover shown, the Australian cover isn’t final yet so I’ll go with this one.)
Here is the synopsis from the publisher:
I was sent here because of a boy. His name was Reeve Maxfield, and I loved him and then he died, and almost a year passed and no one knew what to do with me.
A group of emotionally fragile, highly intelligent teenagers gather at a therapeutic boarding school where they are mysteriously picked for ‘Special Topics in English’. Here, they are tasked with studying Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar and keeping a journal.
Each time the teens write in their diaries they are transported to a miraculous other world called Belzhar, a world where they are no longer haunted by their trauma and grief – and each begins to tell their own story.
From internationally bestselling author Meg Wolitzer, and published by John Green’s editor, Belzhar is a breathtaking and surprising story about first love, deep sorrow, and the power of acceptance.
Why I want to read it:
As soon as I read that it is about teens who write in a journal and get transported into another world I was hooked. It sounds like the kind of book I will love and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
