Believe in the possible ... with this New York Times bestseller by three-time Newbery Honor winner Jennifer L. Holm.

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 gawky teenager 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. Look for EXCLUSIVE NEW MATERIAL in the paperback -- including Ellie's gallery of scientists and other STEM-appropriate features.
