    The contrived plot of this book made it hard to really enjoy as an adult reader, but as a teacher, it actually helps Let me explain In this book, Jeremy Fink is a 12 year old who receives a mysterious box that his father, who died several years before, had arranged to be delivered to him the summer before his 13th birthday It requires four keys to open, but they are missing In it, according to a note from his father, is the meaning of life Jeremy and his best friend, Lizzy, end up looking for ke [...]

    I gave this book five stars because it has a lot of mystery and it is basically a huge puzzle that they have to solve I can also easily visualize the characters thoughts and the setting.

  6. Keilani Ludlow

    Honestly, it was hard to decide between a 2 and 3 star Overall plot and story, 3, wrap up 1 or 2 Jeremy and his best friend Lizzy are great Their story, the little mystery adventure they embark on, all interesting and good Here s my issue You don t title a book with e Meaning of Life unless you really have something good as the meaning of life Or a really good reason why the meaning of life becomes the journey or something like that However, when you have one really important dead person imparti [...]

  11. Agata

    I enjoyed the progression of this book To me, one of the underlying messages was everything happens for a reason , which is something I wholeheartedly believe in Jeremy s curiosity and innocence, which is something that can often be missing from children his age, made him an interesting character to see grow I thought some of the puberty references at the end were a little out of place, but they didn t hinder the story.

  12. April Thompson

    If you go along with the flow of life, without trying to change others, or change situations that are beyond you, life is much peaceful.

  13. Beth

    What a great book What a sweet message of family, friendship, and love Not ready to read to Alex, but might suggest Brooke read it, although with no vampires, I don t know if she will

  14. Megan

    For some reason I am really feeling juvenile fiction this summer Just something about kids books and summer that makes me all nostalgic, even though most of the books I read as a kid during the summer were Goosebumps I still remember trading them amongst kids at school like they were Pogs Oh, man, PogsAnyway, this book is a really perfect summer in middle school book It features a weird kid and his weird friend, but the great part is throughout the book you realize that everyone in this kid s ne [...]

  15. Vonia

    Wendy Mass If only she wrote adult literature As it is, the main complaints I have from reading Jeremy Fink The Meaning of Life come down to it being targeted at young adult readers For example, the length with descriptions puberty process the easier words the elaboration on topics adults have already been educated on the tendency to overtell rather than show Obviously, this is necessary to be categorized and to make it readable for the targeted audience Another complaint is the unbelievability [...]

    Kid safe Mother approved I bought this for my son, but it was so cute, I found myself reading it long into the night It s been awhile since I read a kids book that didn t insult the intelligence of the child reading while also respecting parents wishes and keeping foul language, overt sexuality, alternate lifestyles or disrespect for certain political or religious beliefs out of the equation This one is for EVERYONE.Here, you have some extremely well written characters, loads of humor, a compell [...]

    The best book I read in 2017 was, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life I liked this book a lot for many reasons To start, I liked this book a lot because the story took a lot of unexpected turns, and their was a lot of surprises In addition, to react to these changes in the story, were the characters The characters were all very complex and had many defining traits It felt as though they could just jump right out of the pages into real life Also, I feel like the characters really grew as people w [...]

    Ah, a Classic Wendy Mass story Reading this as a sixth grader had me jumping out of orange red Lebron 13 Special Edition basketball sneakers I started the book, and it was actually ok I mean, a confusing plot and the characters jump from here to over there but overall an O.K read I would give it like a 3.5, but there is no feature for that But still, a great read if you want something to fulfill your boxy Jeremy Fink pun needs.

  28. Kierra Mandell

    I totally did not expect this, at the slightest bit Although the beginning of the story was weak, it definitely built up, and it resulted in a VERY good book I recommend reading this book because it makes you question pretty much everything And the theme is amazing One of them I thought was awesome was that everyone has their own opinion about the same question, and that we all are pretty much the same.

  29. Bret Silverman

    It was an ok book I thought that it needed a little action and pizaz I do not like the end of the book when Jeremy finds out it was all fake It honestly broke my heart to find out the whole book was a lie.

  30. Grace Lin

    Wendy Mass is great writer, the characters were completely believable and fun At first, I thought the plot was a bit too contrived until I got to the end and realized it was supposed to be contrived The ending saved it for me and I was happily satisfied.
