Turnabout

Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Reviewer: Grade 8

Turnabout is about two women who have undergone an unaging process. When the injection to stop the unaging turns out to be poison, Melly and Anny Beth live by themselves for a while, but as they get younger, they have to start thinking about what will happen when they are too young to take care of themselves. Since going back to the agency isn’t a possibility, Melly and Anny Beth must find someone else to take them, before it’s too late. Turnabout was a good book, original, with well-developed characters and many plot twists. Out of 10 stars, I’d give it a 7.5.
