Publisher's Summary

A stunning debut about how grief can open the world in magical ways.
After her best friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzy is convinced that the true cause of the tragedy was a rare jellyfish sting. 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.

Critic Reviews

"Reminiscent of works by Jennifer L. Holm and Sharon Creech, Benjamin's novel is a shining example of the highs and lows of early adolescence." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A painful story smartly told, Benjamin's first solo novel has appeal well beyond a middle school audience." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"Seventh-grade narrator Suzy Swanson will win readers' hearts as she silently struggles to come to terms with her complex emotions over the death of her former best friend." ( Shelf Awareness)

The thing about jellyfish

I loved this book it is my new favorite. And I recommend it to anyone who wants a heart-warming caring story. One thing I liked is that it played with my emotions and made me feel happy and sad at the same time.

Heart warming story

I love this story it was my first audible and I am glad I chose this story, it shows how much Suzy needs a friend, and that she just needs to let go of what happened to franny.
