I read this book for book club and found that although the story was interesting, I really didn't like the way it was written. It's the story of a boy named Oskar whose father died in 9/11. He finds a key and believes that his father has hidden something for him somewhere in NY and he's set out to find it. When we discussed it in book club, I found that I liked it more when I got other people's perspective on Oskar's grief. It was okay.
