Mealworms are small creatures that live in dark secret places. Jeremy is a bit like that when he leaves his home in rural Nova Scotia and moves to Toronto with his mother. Lots of things keep him from enjoying his new life, but the worst is his science partner, Aaron, who is more annoying than sand in a bathing suit. Jeremy is also burdened by the secret he carries about the motorcycle accident that injured him and killed his father. Although Jeremy is haunted by his past, he starts to feel at home in Toronto when he realizes he has some skills he can share with his classmates. And when his mealworm project yields some surprising results, Jeremy is finally able to talk about his part in the fatal accident.

It was funny with the mealworms and spot. When Aaron played with Superman and Darth Vader was really funny.

One of the titles from the Forest of reading 2009/10. Jeremy and his Mom move to Toronto from Nova Scotia after his Father is killed in a motocycle accident. A new school and new friends is hard to get used to and there's that annoying kid Aaron...Somehow Jeremy works through the loss of his father and his new life. Very moving to read and well written too.
