The Thing About Jellyfish

I’m 10 and I like to read longer books as I get older. One book that caught my eye at Barnes & Noble was “The Thing About Jellyfish”. You can get this book free through their Summer Reading Program. So I plucked it off the shelf and as soon as I got home, I plopped down on the couch and settled down to read. After the first chapter, I was in the book completely.

I liked The Thing About Jellyfish because Suzy Swanson, the main character, is a quiet person. I’ve been reading a lot of books about quiet people lately, and they’re really good.  Sometimes you feel like a book is going to be boring, and you don’t really want to read it. With The Thing About Jellyfish, that it is definitely not boring.

This book is about a girl named Suzy, whose friend died from drowning.  Suzy wants to find out what happened, and ends up going on a trip to try to find answers.  The book was very interesting and I couldn’t wait to see what happened at the end.

I highly recommend reading this book because it is great and it doesn’t have too many characters. Thank you, I hope you like the book!
