Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass - Review | BookPageJeremy and Lizzie are best friends and have been since they were one-year-olds. They have lived through the departure of Lizzie's mother, who ran off with a Dakota cattle rancher, and the death of Jeremy's father. They are friends in the almost-like-a-sibling sort of way and not, definitely not, in the I-have-a-secret-crush-on-you way. Their bedrooms share a wall between their apartments and they have been passing notes, getting into spats and bossing each other around for nearly 12 years. When he is about to turn 13, Jeremy opens a package from his father, deceased five years earlier. Engraved on the box are the words, The meaning of Life: for Jeremy Fink to open on his 13th Birthday.

DNF at page The only reason why it got two stars is because some of the descriptions and characters are well done. This is a story about a boy who receives a box with the words The Meaning of Life: for Jeremy Fink to open on his 13th birthday. The keys to open it, however, are not there. He and his friend Lizzy start off to find the keys. The main characters, especially Lizzy, are disobedient, and although eventually receive punishment, don't show any repentance. I didn't finish the book, so I can't really judge.
