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 audience with her quirky characters that are easy to relate to. Download and start listening now!

    " this book is a coming of age story in the most literal way possible- Jeremy is given a near-impossible task to complete by his thirteenth birthday. I felt silly reading a book for 10-15 year olds, but I really enjoyed it. Two thumbs up. Easy red for before bed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 11/11/2011

    " This book was very entertaining. It was an easy read for me. I took one star away from it because the people in the book are not Christians and believe that the Big Bang actually happened. The story line was very nice, and the characters are well put together. Over all I'd give it four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 4/20/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 4/8/2011
