The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

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 dont 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. Suzys achingly heartfelt journey explores life, death, the astonishing wonder of the universe...and the potential for love and hope right next door.

Not so. Such books come around so infrequently that special attention should be paid to them when they do. Our protagonist and narrator is Suzy Swanson, whose former best friend, Franny, has drowned while swimming in a calm sea. Franny had joined a new clique of popular girls when they reached middle school, and we learn that Suzy, feeling powerless to stop their gradual estrangement, had tried some bizarre behavior in a desperate, failed attempt to woo her friend back. Her obsession leads her to track down a jellyfish expert who lives on the other side of the globe. Together they will prove that when things happen, they happen for a reason.
