Grades 5-8
As New York City kid Jeremy Fink approaches his all-important thirteenth birthday, he receives a box. Not just any box—one engraved with the words: “The meaning of life: for Jeremy Fink.” It needs four unique keys to open it, and it is gift from his dad. Yet his father died five years ago.

Jeremy and Lizzy’s quirky yet caring friendship makes this unusual story a winner.
