Believe in the possible . . . with this "warm, witty, and wise" New York Times bestselling novel from three-time Newbery Honor winner Jennifer L. Holm. A perfect read about a child's relationship with her grandfather!
 
Galileo. Newton. Salk. Oppenheimer.
Science can change the world . . . but can it go too far?
 
Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses 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?
 
With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Jennifer Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality . . . and possibility.

Wow is was so great I learned a little bit about science. I felt bad for Ellie but her life turned out fine. The author grabbed my attention from the beginning when she talked about how she had the goldfish for so long I really hope you decide to read the wonderful story that actually doesn’t have to much to do about the goldfish. Thank you for reading this.🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠
