It is really difficult to write an honest novel about the experience of grief for kids, but Ali Benjamin proves that she is more than up to the task in this startlingly authentic debut for middle readers. Starring a headstrong, investigative girl, The Thing About Jellyfish illuminates how grief, denial, and questions of (im)mortality can confuse and even consume the most "clear-headed" and scientific of us. Deeply perceptive, Benjamin's novel will become a new favorite of fans of highly acclaimed novels such as MockingbirdCounting by 7s, and Bridge to Terabithia.; Ages 9-13, give or take a year. ~ Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
