Summary: 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.
Review: This was a really emotional read. Suzy is desperate to make sense of her friend’s sudden death and believes she died from a rare jellyfish sting. Her best friend’s death really affected her so much to the point that she is obsessed with finding everything she can about jellyfish to prove that is how her friend died. There’s also the fact that she has stopped talking to others and her parents are concerned enough to take her to a therapist.
I found myself wanting to know the true reason of her friend’s death and seeing Suzy overcome the sadness of losing her friend.
