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.

LOVE THIS BOOK BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ!!
OK, this is the best book ever. In the beginning, it was a little dry, i must admit. But when i really got into it, it was so great. By FAR the best book that i have ever read. I finished it in about a week or two and would definately read again. Such a good friendship involved and very descriptive. Good job Wendy Mass!
