Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life

in Essential Reads

Author: Wendy Mass
Review by Essentialmom (for ages 11+)
A beautiful book about a boy’s quest for ‘the meaning of life’ as he approaches his thirteenth birthday.  His deceased father has left him a locked box and he must follow adventures to find the key and get it open in time for his birthday.  It is a stunning story about loss, friendship, and the people who surround you in life.
