Ellie's grandpa Melvin is a world-renowned scientist with two PhDs who is stuck in the body of a fourteen-year-old boy. Ellie is happy to have her grandfather around even if he eats all the food in the fridge. Melvin doesn't exactly fit in middle school but, Ellie is excited for them to team up together in the county science fair. No one could expect how groundbreaking their experiment turns out to be when they may have discovered the formula for eternal youth. However, when Ellie's cat, Jonas Salk, becomes sick, the stakes become higher. Is the key to happiness eternal life?

This is the second novel in the series, but, I only read this book. It seems that each book can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend reading the books in order because I felt like I was missing something. I can't say that I liked any of the main characters. I thought Melvin was quite abrasive at times.  I didn't really feel connected to any of the characters and didn't really care for them. I did think the novel teaches some good lessons about life and I appreciate the science infused portion of the book.
