Book Review: Turnabout, by Margaret Peterson Haddix

turnabout_coverTurnabout, by Margaret Peterson Haddix, is a great book for those who are interested in the idea of living forever.

In 2085, two scientists come up with a way to make people live forever. They give a shot to someone, and it makes the person get younger every year. When they reach a certain age, they give them the cure, so they stay that age forever. The scientists first test it on animals, but then on humans. They inject it into fifty people who are around 100 years old. After they give it to them, they realize the cure will kill them. When two girls, Amelia and Anny Beth, hear the news, they run. Now it’s 2001, Amelia and Anny Beth are teenagers. They still have no idea what will happen when they reach age zero.

I think this book is great. It has something for everyone to enjoy. I would recommend it for people who are ready for a good book that will keep them on the edge of their seats.

  1. Wow! Great review! I love how you leave it at a cliffhanger! I would go to the ends of the world to find out what happens next, and it made me want to read it the instant I read the review.

  2. Wow! Your review made me interested in reading Turnabout. It sounds like a very good read! I have read FOUND by Margaret Haddix, and that was a great book, so I’m sure Turnabout will be just as good! I can’t wait to read it!
