REVIEW: The Fourteenth Goldfish

The Fourteenth Goldfish

The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm

This book was so good!! Easily one of the best books I’ve read this year. So many great YA books are coming out now and The Fourteenth Goldfish should be at the top of every list and on every ‘tween’ bookshelf.

Coming of age with a twist. Ellie’s life is changing: a new school year begins, her best friend has moved on to new interests and her mother brings home a strange teenage boy who may be her grandfather! Has Melvin has discovered an eternal youth formula? Ellie learns more about her family and herself as the year progresses. Holm avoids the usual teen angst and stock situations as Ellie tries to help her grandfather get back into his lab and learns more about herself and her family along the way. Holm has such an ear for dialogue and captures perfectly the way families speak to and about each other. I loved this book and read it in one sitting-could not put it down. I was given a copy of the book-the review is my own.
