I thought the plot of the book was really interesting: a woman on the verge of death takes a new medicine that causes her to grow younger instead of older. However the book relies too much on the gimiky plot line and the is sometimes very predictable.

This book is probably my 3rd favorite book in the world! After Stargirl (by Spinelli), and before Ellen Tebbits (by Cleary). At first I was like uhhhhhhhhh, this doesn't look to good. but then I forced myself to read 5 chapters, to see if I liked it, and I LOVED it!! It's about two old ladies in a nursing home. Without out knowing it,they had signed an agreement to take part in something called "Project Turnabout". The doctors in charge of it told the relatives that they died of old age (which they hadn't). They give the ladies (and other old people at the nursing home who also signed it unknowingly) something which made them decline in age. Through the totally bizzare days of 2023 and such, they must conform to the new age, such as voice automated shopping with voice credit cards. Eventually, they get down to the young days, of their youth. But what will happen if they go back too far? Will they be reborn? I totally reccomend this to ANYONE who asks.

This was the second time I read this book and being that I read it before, I didn't have the same suspense as the first time around. Even with me reading it before, Ms. Haddix is a really good author, and I still was totally like "what? NO! don't do it." overall this was a great book, more people should read it.
