Review of Belzhar-Meg Wolitzer

Jam has lost the love of her life and her parents, unsure what to do with a depressed teen, send her to a therapeutic boarding school in rural Vermont. She is enrolled in an exclusive class called Special Topics in English, taught by a teacher who will retire when the semester ends.  When the teacher gives her small group of students a vintage journal with instructions to write in it at least twice a week, each student begins to write and finds themselves in a land where their greatest trauma is still in the future.  Jam is with her wonderful British boyfriend before he dies and each time, she finds five pages full of writing when she returns.  As the end of the semester comes to an end and the journal is nearly full, what will happen to the land where the past never changes?  4 Elves - Highly recommended for teens
