Publisher's Summary

Jeremy Fink has big plans for this summer with his best friend Lizzy, a notorious troublemaker (and no, he does not have a secret crush on her). He has everything he needs within a few blocks of his home, so he never has to leave his little neighborhood. And this summer, he officially becomes a teenager.

A mysterious box engraved with the words "THE MEANING OF LIFE: For Jeremy Fink To Open On His 13th Birthday" arrives in the mail from Jeremy's long-departed father. The four keys needed to open the box are lost, setting Jeremy and Lizzy off on a quest to find them somewhere in the vastness of New York City. Along the way, they soon discover something about themselves in their search for the keys to the meaning of life.

Author Wendy Mass is a recipient of the ALA's Schneider Family Award. She delights young audiences with her quirky characters that are easy to relate to.

    "A Feel-Good Story That Opens The Heart & The Mind"

    Wendy Mass did another great job creating unique characters. Combine that with another amazingly unique story and you have a wonderful book. With his 13th birthday just a summer away, Jeremy gets the best present anybody can ask for - the exposure to life that will forever change the way he views the world...all thanks to his dad (who passed away when he was 8).

    The story had a rough start, but less than an hour into this adventure I couldn't stop listening. Mass ends the story with a feel-good twist that I have come to now expect from her writing.

    It is a wonderful story...maybe her best thus far. Definitely check it out.

    "Amazing book"

    At first I thought it was going to be "one of those books" like a bad book. But when I was on the 3 chapter I thought "this is a good book" I highly recommend your kids to read this book.

    "Great"

    This book took me through a life ride of a young boy with dreams and desires I couldn't ever imagine. He took big risk a and eagerly waited and work hardly for a reward to end with. Through the story you experience new emotions and a new look at life. I recommend many people read this- because I am not a Boone easer what so ever , but this book interferences with me beyond imaginable .
