Martin Emerson's mom has died, and he continues to behave normally, which is a problem for everyone who expect him to react, lash out, grieve, or do something. He doesn't. What he does do is create a web site where he records his philosophical thoughts about the meaning of life and various other ideas. This is more suited to high school students so I passed it on to my local high school.

A White Pine book about a 17-year-old teenager who is unusually calm after the death of his mother. He doesn¿t get into anything self destructive like smoking, drinking, or taking drugs, which is a constant worry to his therapist. Instead, he builds a website on which he examines basic questions of life. Will appeal to more intellectually inclined kids.

A brilliantly written book in relevant language and strong themes. I credit this book with piquing my interest in philosophy. Definitely worth a read, no matter what your age.
