Ellie's grandpa, Melvin is a world famous scientist. However, he is in the body of a fourteen-year-old boy. While he doesn't really fit in at home or at school, Ellie is still happy to have him around. Ellie and Melvin team up for the science fair to find the "fountain of eternal youth".  No one will know how close they will get to finding the key to eternal youth. However, they will soon learn is happiness guaranteed with eternal life?

I found the book to be a fun and quirky read. I like the scientific references, especially the cat's name. The bond between Ellie and her grandfather, Melvin was both fun and endearing. However, it was a bit weird that they were around the same age and Ellie's friend is in love with Melvin. Overall, a fun and great read.

"Believe in the unexpected" with this hilarious, heartwarming, and much-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Fourteenth Goldfish!

Ellie's grandpa Melvin is a world-renowned scientist . . . in the body of a fourteen-year-old boy. His feet stink, and he eats everything in the refrigerator--and Ellie is so happy to have him around. Grandpa may not exactly fit in at middle school, but he certainly keeps things interesting. When he and Ellie team up for the county science fair, no one realizes just how groundbreaking their experiment will be. The formula for eternal youth may be within their reach! And when Ellie's cat, Jonas Salk, gets sick, the stakes become even higher. But is the key to eternal life really the key to happiness? Sometimes even the most careful experiments yield unexpected--and wonderful--results.
