Présentation de l'éditeur :

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.

Description du livre Pan MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. État : New. Main Market Ed.. 205 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s peculiar how no-words can be better than words. How silence can say more than noise, or a person s absence can occupy even more space than their presence did. Suzy is 12 when her best friend, Franny, drowns one summer at the beach. It takes two days for the news to reach Suzy, and it s not something that she can accept: Franny has always been a strong swimmer, from the day they met in swim class when they were just 5. How can someone all of a sudden, just no longer be there? Suzy realizes that they must have got it wrong: Franny didn t just drown - she was stung by a poisonous jellyfish. This makes a lot more sense to Suzy s logical mind than a random drowning - cause: a jellyfish sting; effect: death. Suzy s journey to acceptance is quiet - she resolves to either say something important, or say nothing at all. But it s also bursting with bittersweet humour, heart-breaking honesty, big ideas and small details. Perfect for fans of Wonder, Counting By 7s and My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece.
