The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin | 1 Minute Reviews

The Thing About Jellyfish is an impressive middle grade book about coping with the death of a friend, growing up and growing apart, and an obsession with jellyfish.


When Suzy’s best friend drowns, she decides that it is jellyfish to blame, and sets out on a mission to prove to everyone that it was the jellyfish. Approaching the world of jellyfish with a fervour, Suzy reaches out to scientists, pouring her grief into determination.

Touching, sad and absolutely filled with fascinating jellyfish facts, I really recommend this first novel from Ali Benjamin. All editions also include stunning jellyfish illustrations.

Also, I recommend getting the hardback and removing the dust jacket – the yellow cover with the sparkly jellyfish is stunning!

Suitable for ages 9+.
