“The Thing About Jellyfish is simply brilliant. A 12 year old girl deals with grief in a most unusual way. Perfect for 10 and up but adults should read it too. Readers who loved Counting By Sevens will treasure it.” –
— Glen from Mountain View
This stunning debut novel about grief and wonder was an instant New York Times bestseller and captured widespread critical acclaim, including selection as a 2015 National Book Award finalist
After her best friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzy is convinced that the true cause of the tragedy must have been a rare jellyfish sting--things don't just happen for no reason. Retreating into a silent world of imagination, she crafts a plan to prove her theory--even if it means traveling the globe, alone. Suzy's achingly heartfelt journey explores life, death, the astonishing wonder of the universe...and the potential for love and hope right next door.
