Science is great, and scientists have made some amazing discoveries over the years but what would happen if they were to figure out how to obtain eternal youth? Would it be a wonderful scientific discovery or would we be getting more than we bargained for?
Ellie is an eleven year-old girl that loves working puzzles, hates being onstage (much to her theater parents dismay!) and who discovered she has had 13 different goldfish over the years rather than just the one she thought she had!
When her scientist grandfather comes to live with them after having discovered the fountain of youth and is now a 14 year old boy again, things get interesting!
Covering topics such as death, aging, friendship, family and immortality in a light-hearted way, you can't go wrong with a Jennifer Holm book and this would appeal to girls and boys both!
