The Aging Machine by Paul Robert Schreyer (Book Review #1235)


The aging machine is a young adult story about John and Taylor, two 15-year-olds living in a state-run care facility, both accused of a murder they never conducted and sentenced to 60 years of life in prison.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Dr. Scott, who is the inventor of a prototype of the aging machine, has the two kids tested, causing them to age one year every second. While the now 75-year-old teenagers investigate the reason behind all of this, the story shapes up to be one thrilling ride.

I particularly enjoyed Amy Wilson, a 26-year-old reporter who believed in the teenager’s story. The concept of two kids in the body of a 75-year-old was also intriguing to me. I admired how the author navigated the concept and made sure the dialogue and behavior represented the real age rather than the one given to them.

I found the story to be novel, and for that, I appreciate its flow and introduction. I recommend this book to those who like to read thrilling storylines and enjoy young adult fiction.
