Description

Winner of the Lambda Literary Award! The Thing About Jellyfish meets Raymie Nightingale in this tender middle grade novel from Lisa Jenn Bigelow, acclaimed author of Drum Roll, Please. Hazel knows a lot about the world. ThatA??s because when sheA??s not hanging with her best friend, taking care of her dog, or helping care for the goats on her family's farm, she loves reading through dusty encyclopedias. But even Hazel doesnA??t have answers for the questions awaiting her as she enters eighth grade. What if no one at her new school gets her, and she doesn't make any friends? WhatA??s going to happen to one of her moms, whoA??s pregnant again after having two miscarriages? Why does everything have to change when life was already perfectly fine? As Hazel struggles to cope, sheA??ll come to realize that sometimes you have to look within yourselfA??instead of the pages of a bookA??to find the answer to lifeA??s most important questions.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Kathleen McInerney loses no time in transporting listeners into the complicated world of 13-year-old Hazel Brownlee-Wellington, who is navigating a momentous time in her life. Not only is she leaving her best friend due to school redistricting, but she also is facing the impending birth of a new sibling following two traumatic miscarriages. Also meriting her attention are goat keeping; two schoolmates, one transgender, the other a bully in a wheelchair; and Darwin's theory of evolution. McInerney has much on her plate as Hazel moves at a fast clip and wears every emotion on her sleeve. In addition, multiple supporting characters are given vocal variety: a sympathetic older brother, a perky health and human development teacher, a hesitant new friend, and two empathetic mothers. A.R.
