Turnabout By Margaret Peterson Haddix – This book is a weird one. It is not the typical Haddix books. It is about this science experiment this two doctor do on elderly people. They are given a shot that unages the elderly. The chapters go back and forth between real age and their backwards age. It turns out okay, but it took me a while to really get into the book.
