The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is today's choice for the #Book-A-Day reading challenge.Author:  Sylvia Plath

Category:  Drama

Overview: A semi-autobiographical book about the author’s descent into depression.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A novel about a woman’s struggle with depression, it is made all the more poignant as we now know that Plath was facing the same struggles.  Heartbreaking stuff that will haunt you.”

Ethan: “Plath was the first author to give me an accurate and unflinching look at depression. The Bell Jar provides great insight for anyone dealing with the disease themselves or entering a profession that encounters it.”
