相信一切可能!

  當生老病死的生命自然法則瓦解,那麼,人類的生活、秩序、存在的意義與價值,又會是什麼樣的局面?對整個世界又會帶來什麼樣的影響?

  青春可以重來,生命重新啟動,從此告別長大、變老的人生?

  十一歲的艾麗不喜歡改變 ,她希望五年級可以不要結束,希望從一年級認識至今的好朋友不要漸行漸遠……她甚至還想念她親愛的金魚——獨一無二的哥帝十三世。

  一天,有個奇怪的十三歲男孩突然出現,這個男孩個性霸道、講話機車,最詭異的是,感覺跟外公有點像,而且還戴著外公的戒指!艾麗的外公梅文是個執著於研究如何「長生不老」的科學家,難道外公成功讓自己返老還童了嗎?

  這對夢想以科學改變世界的祖孫女,反而先翻轉了彼此的人生……

Believe in the possible . . . with this New York Times bestseller by three-time Newbery Honor winner Jennifer L. Holm. A perfect read about a child's relationship with her grandfather

Galileo. Newton. Salk. Oppenheimer. Science can change the world . . . but can it go too far?
Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He's bossy. He's cranky. And weirdly enough . . . he looks a lot like Ellie's grandfather, a scientist who's always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this gawky teenager really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth?
With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Jennifer Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality . . . and possibility. Look for EXCLUSIVE NEW MATERIAL in the paperback--including Ellie's gallery of scientists and other STEM-appropriate features.
