The Thing About Jellyfish, by Ali Benjamin, is an intriguing novel told in an interesting format. Suzy Swanson has turned into an un-popular, weird girl at her school ever since her ex-best friend Franny Jackson died. Suzy tries to stay “invisible” in her school, and never talks to anyone unless she really has to. Suzy believes Franny died from a jellyfish sting, and she researches like crazy to prove that her theory is correct. Suzy goes to extremely high measures to prove this hypothesis!

Each part of this book starts off with a step of the Scientific Method, with a short quote from Suzy’s current teacher. I thought this format was interesting and cool. Also, within all of the chapters, you learned a lot about jellyfish. This book is great for people that like a heart-felt novel, and also great for those that want to learn about jellyfish! I would, without a doubt, rate this book a ten out of ten!
