Ms. Masullo is currently reading "The Fourteenth Goldfish" by popular, award winning author Jennifer L. Holm. This 2017 Sequoyah book selection is about 11 year old Ellie who gets a visit from a gawky teenager who looks and acts very much like her cranky grandfather who has always been obsessed with immortality. Read this delightful, fun, quirky adventure into the world of science to find out if this is really Grandpa Melvin who finally discovered the fountain of youth.
