Finished this last night. Excellent! Summers took the tired dead girl trope and really did something with it. She spoke for girls. She also broke my heart. (Photo from the Olympic Peninsula, where we are spending Christmas.)

I‘m enjoying this book, but I wish there were pictures of all these amazing creatures. Also, why is there no jellyfish emoji? Someone needs to get on that.

“Immersing myself in the science of jellyfish nourished a recognition that the fate of ocean, the very cauldron where life began and that still sustains our life on land, is now in our hands. We are responsible for its future, which is also our own - and that of our children.”

Gather the Daughters | Jennie Melamed

“Father once gave her [a book] he said was good for girls, but it was all about people who wouldn‘t call each other by their first names and never thought about anything except getting married (the process of which seemed alarmingly complicated).”
💗I am happy whenever I find my beloved Pride and Prejudice mentioned in a book.
