This book is sad, but an amazing read! The book starts in Suzy Swason's present and excerpts from Suzy's past are sprinkled throughout the book. The first story from suzy's past is a recent one, telling of the death of her best friend Franny Jackson. The stories of Suzy's past then go on to show the progression of Suzy's relationship with Franny: they are quick to become friends, but as they grow older Franny changes. She begins to care more about what others think and is ashamed of Suzy because Suzy is, well, "weird". The affects of peer pressure cause Franny to be mean to Suzy, just like everyone else. Suzy tries to tell her this, but in a way that did more damage than help and their relationship ends in a terrible, unrevesable state. Meanwhile Suzy has gone mute to mourn Franny's death, which she blames on a jellyfish sting. By the end of the book Suzy is able to make new friends and start a new chapter of her life. A chapter where she can try her hardest to forgive both herself and Franny for the way their friendship ended and remember the best of the amazing friend she lost.
