The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer Holm, Leveled Books Q-R
There's been a lot of change in 11-year-old Ellie's life lately. She misses fifth grade, she misses her best friend, and she misses her recently departed goldfish. Then an odd boy shows up, and he reminds Ellie of her grandfather, who happens to be obsessed with immortality. Could this cranky teenage boy really be Grandpa Melvin? A lighthearted story that celebrates the wonders of science, and explores questions of life and death, and possibility. Look in the back of the book for additional information on famous scientists, discussion questions, and more.
