...there's a place where the lost go to be found?
Would you go there?
|Jam Gallahue is unable to cope with the loss of her boyfriend Reeve. Her grief leads her parents to send her to The Wooden Barn, a therapeutic boarding school in Vermont.|
Here, Jam is selected to attend Mrs. Q.'s Special Topics English class where a journal-writing assignment transports her to the magical realm of Belzhar.
At first, Jam and the four other classmates, all of whom have endured debilitating losses, are reluctant to write in the journal, but when they begin to write in their pages, they are transported to their former lives, at least for a while.
