Twelve year old Elliott has a problem: his mom is slowly getting dementia and they will lose their home if they don’t find money. One thousand year old Virgo also has a problem,  she wants to prove herself to the zodiac counsel. To do this she must take ambrosia to Prisoner Forty-Two who is under Stonehenge, which happens to be just a few steps from Elliott’s house. Ambrosia is what keeps immortals  immortal. So Virgo crashes into Elliott’s barn and tells him about everything. Virgo must find Stonehenge and Elliot thinks she can help his mother so he agrees to take her to Stonehenge. Elliott agree’s to help her on her mission but they have some issues as they make it to Stonehenge.  

I liked this book because it always left me with a cliffhanger and there was always some sort of action going on. The only downside is that the beginning is confusing because it's telling two stories but otherwise the book was great.
