Title: Turnabout
Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Pages: 223
Cover Rating: 1/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Character Rating: 3/5
Overall Rating: 3/5

This book was good, but not my favorite. I think that the storyline was interesting, but I thought that the introduction took way to long. I am fine with long books, but when the book is not that long, and the introduction takes about half of the book, in my opinion, it is to long. I thought that the characters were decently made, but I don't feel like I really got to know them well throughout the book. All in all it was just okay.


In the year 2000 Melly and Anny Beth were old and ready to die. But when offered the chance to be young again by participating in a top-secret experiment called Project Turnabout, they agreed. They received injections that made them grow younger, and it seemed like a miracle. But when the injections that were supposed to stop the unaging process turned out to be deadly, Melly and Anny Beth decided to run for their lives.

Now it is 2085. Melly and Anny Beth are teenagers. They have no idea what will happen once they are babies again, but they do know they will soon be too young to take care of themselves. They need to find someone to help them before time runs out, once and for all....
