Type of conflict: man vs. self

The conflict of this book would be man vs. self because Suzzy is vs. herself with Franny being gone. She didn't come out of her room for a few weeks to about a month. She wouldn't talk to anyone. She would just keep to herself.

Pg. 15- "It didn't make sense because it hadn't been that long since I'd seen you, and you were just as alive as everyone then."

"Just keep swimming no matter how hard the current," -Ava

Symbolism

A Jellyfish is a symbolism of the book because Suzzy seems to think that Franny got stung by a very rare kind or poisonous jellyfish. Suzy thinks this because Franny is a really good swimmer.
