Moving to Crystal Springs, Maine from Boston is difficult, and since Dad had the crippling stroke, nothing is as it was.  There is something mysterious about the old family estate that begs to be explored.   There are rumors and legends in the town about cryptic happenings in the old buildings.  When Ephraim finds the bottles with the enigmatic label, he is sure that he will find the Fountain of Youth and save his father.   (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award, 2015)
