Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer



I thought this book was well written and plotted. I finished it quickly, binge-reading over two days.The characters’ issues (and boy do they have issues) unfolded neatly and the supernatural aspects of the book were a great plot device. Here’s an example of writing that makes the teens feel real: ” This class is like one of those twenty-four hour convenience stores, except the only thing this one sells is depression. If it were actually a store, it would be called Bleak Mart.”
