Don is a nineteen year old sophomore at a junior college in Texas. Having grown up in an evangelical household, he begins to question his religion and decides to go to Reed College in Portland, Oregon, one of the most godless campuses in the country.
On his arrival, it is immediately clear just how different everything looks through Don's eyes. It is a typical college campus, with a mix of different personalities and cultures. Don soon makes friends; one in particular, is the last person he'd want to get to know. This new friend is an atheist but has been chosen this year to be a 'Pope', to speak for the Christian community. He doesn't like Christians but strikes up a friendship with Don.
Don also makes friends with two girls: Penny and Lauryn. The latter, who is a flamboyantly dressed lesbian, shows Don around campus and is very frank about what he should do about his religious crisis. Meanwhile, Penny is a soft spoken girl who is unsure of her feelings for Don. Will he rediscover his faith at Reed College?
Blue Like Jazz is based on the bestselling, semi-autobiographical novel by Donald Miller, which was published in 2003.
