I loved this easy-to-read story that makes you think about your own life and what's important. Jeremy, and his best friend Lizzy, find themselves a midst an adventure when Jeremy is given a box left to him by his deceased father. In order to open the box, they need to find four keys, and the search leads them to learn about themselves, other people, and what's really important. ( )

This is a book that i would very much like to read again. Jeremy is just a character but Wendy Mass will describe him like he is very much real. I loved this book and I think you should read it. I think that because this book is for everyone, I found that any book by this author is accommodating to most ages. This book gave me a few second thoughts, the book has some bits and pieces that I think is helpful to not only Jeremy here but also for everyone reading the book.

This book is about a young boy named Jeremy who, on his birthday receives a box. Now this is not your ordinary box. It has a number of keyholes that only can be opened with the right keys. As Jeremy learns more about his box he also learns about his father that had passed while Jeremy was very young. When Jeremy finally opens the box he is confused by what is inside. He cant tell if its real or not, when he gets back to NY he discovers that there is a meaning behind it all. ( )

Read by Andy Paris, my very favorite narrator, this story is charming, heart warming : a coming of age adventure /mystery you will enjoy reading to children (or even for yourself) . It opens with a relationship between two long term friends, Jeremy and his red-headed female friend, Lizzy. For his 13th birthday, he is sent a present. It is a mysterious box with the words engraved on the top, "The Meaning of Life". Unfortunately, it has 4 locks on it and no keys. Jeremy use clues to track down the possible location of the keys. They end up discovering much about themselves in the process. Wonderful story. ( 9.5 hours) ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316058491, Paperback)

In one month Jeremy Fink will turn thirteen. But does he have what it takes to be a teenager? He collects mutant candy, he won't venture more than four blocks from his apartment if he can help it, and he definitely doesn't like surprises. On the other hand, his best friend, Lizzy, isn't afraid of anything, even if that might get her into trouble now and then.

Jeremy's summer takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious wooden box arrives in the mail. According to the writing on the box, it holds the meaning of life! Jeremy is supposed to open it on his thirteenth birthday. The problem is, the keys are missing, and the box is made so that only the keys will open it without destroying what's inside. Jeremy and Lizzy set off to find the keys, but when one of their efforts goes very wrong, Jeremy starts to lose hope that he'll ever be able to open the box. But he soon discovers that when you're meeting people named Oswald Oswald and using a private limo to deliver unusual objects to strangers all over the city, there might be other ways of finding out the meaning of life.

Lively characters, surprising twists, and thought-provoking ideas make Wendy Mass's latest novel an unforgettable read.
