Suzy has a big fight with her best friend at the end of the school year. But then, her friend dies in a drowning accident. Suzy becomes 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. This is the story of grief and friendship and the search for truth in the face of unspeakable tragedy. Along the way you’ll learn a lot about jellyfish!  (Vermont DCF Book Award 2017)
