The Thing About Jellyfish

But now that I've learned so many fascinating facts about them in this book, I have a whole new appreciation!
I am drawn to middle-grade books that really show us the confusion and angst of those painful years. Reading of a girl who was a little bit of a late bloomer, a tender-hearted misfit who'd cherished her friendship with her best friend, and didn't understand how they'd started to grow apart. Then having this girl grieve for her best friend and regret the horrible last interaction between them that she never got a chance to talk to her friend about again -- so poignant.
I loved this book. The writing and the foil of the jellyfish.
