Wendy Mass did another great job creating unique characters. Combine that with another amazingly unique story and you have a wonderful book. With his 13th birthday just a summer away, Jeremy gets the best present anybody can ask for - the exposure to life that will forever change the way he views the world...all thanks to his dad (who passed away when he was 8).
The story had a rough start, but less than an hour into this adventure I couldn't stop listening. Mass ends the story with a feel-good twist that I have come to now expect from her writing.
It is a wonderful story...maybe her best thus far. Definitely check it out.

I recommend this for adults who enjoy a thought-provoking kids' book and for kids who are philosophical and/or intellectually curious. It's a fun story about the meaning of life with a fairly simple, but fundamentally important message. I personally found the main supporting character somewhat annoying because I have a hard time with people who are not curious and with kids who are willfully incurious... but the author did a very good job of capturing multiple common personality types, which is a great thing for young readers to learn about. We all have strengths despite being wildly different from one another. Like I always tell my staff, having a tool shed full of hammers is not very useful to any project. The best tool shed has a huge diversity of tools.
