Publisher Description

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.

Oddlot Entertainment has acquired the screen rights to The Thing About Jellyfish, with Gigi Pritzker set to produce with Bruna Papandrea and Reese Witherspoon.

Awesome book!🤩🥳🤪

It was so entertaining, I couldn’t put it down! I also learned a lot of things from it, like the irukajandi jellyfish is more poisonous than the tarantula. This book is very relatable, Suzy goes through some of the same stuff I am going through.

It was alright

Kept me from not being bored because of KOTLC. Overall, it was a good book. I don’t get why people in the reviews say they cried . It’s not that sad. Yeah, her friend died. So what?

P.S. If you are reading this review, and you want to find out more about KOTLC, just search: Keeper of the lost cities by Shannon Messenger. And YOU BETTER SHIP SOKEEFE!!!!!! Fitzphie is stupid and dexphie didn’t work out (well neither does fitzphie) but you get my point

A good effort but no good plot

The writing was more like a young girl’s diary then an actually book.
