Keek is having family, friend, and boyfriend problems. Suffering from chickenpox—which is much worse when it ails you during your teen years versus childhood years—she stays at her grandmother’s house. Alone with her thoughts, Sylvia Plath’s THE BELL JAR, and a manual typewriter she uses for diary entries, she winds her way through her problems and their solutions.

I loved Keek’s voice. She’s such an intelligent, quirky young woman and she jumped off the pages. Also, as someone who’s read THE BELL JAR multiple times, I related to her obsession with Plath.
