This book is an easy and relaxing read, good for ages 8 to 12. Ellie faces a number of changes throughout this book, whether she likes it or not. Highly recommended for listening

I liked the main character of this book because she always seemed to stay positive in the worst of situations. My favourite character was the grandpa in this story. He was my favourite because he was funny to read about when he had the appearance of a teenager but still acted like an old man. He was able to become a teenager again due to an invention the he created called the T. Melvin.
