Thriller!
Charles Ferro is an expatriate American living in Denmark who writes many books for children and teenagers in his mother tongue. “Forever Young” is written for children around the 6th-8th class. It is a fascinating story about Frank who, due to his addiction to playing poker on the Internet, happens to use his father’s credit card when he is playing. Of course he looses a lot of money and consequently he runs away from home. As he flees he meets a grown up man, who takes Frank for a ride. Contrary for what you would suspect, the man, Del, is a “good guy”. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Leenie and Jack who Frank meets randomly in his further flight. Under the pretext of helping Frank, they abduct him to a deserted located house where they want to use him and Maddie, another kid on the run, as living test animals for an elderly couple who seek the source for eternal youth. Fortunately, this experiment does not succeed as Del at the last moment rescues the two youngsters, who subsequently go back to the safeness of their families. The book will, in regards to the theme, appeal to young persons liking thrillers.
