This week we have another young adult book. Turnabout
Margaret Peterson Haddix
Simon & Schuster, 2000
“April 21, 2085
My sixteenth birthday. Sad, sad day. What I mind most-what I’ve dreaded most-is losing my license. I could still pass for being older for at least another year or two, but the agency won’t let me. Against the rules , they say. We know best, they say. How can they be so sure when this is all new territory?”
What if you were given the chance to be younger and live another life? What if you didn’t remember agreeing to do this? What happens when you keep getting younger?
In this novel we get to experience the hidden issues in de-aging and how things constantly change. Haddix has created a world where two friends will be friends until the end, which may be another beginning to them and the strange way they exist in the world.
Would you want to read this? Let me know.
