Suzy is convinced a jellyfish killed her best friend.

There is so much going on in Suzy's life, and she is just a little behind puberty wise and a more than a bit socially awkward.  Then Suzy stops talking after Franny dies. She also becomes obsessed with jellyfish when she becomes convinced that is what was responsible for Franny's death. This powerfully  moving debut novel captures the uncertainty, awkwardness, and drama of middle school perfectly. It is also gut-wrenching examination of grief and guilt.
