I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Blurb from NetGalley: “Science can change the world…but can it go too far? Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses the fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this pimply boy really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth?”
