    The Thing About Jellyfish    by Ali Benjamin

    Hardcovered, with dust jacket.  Very gently used, in very good condition.


    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 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. 

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