Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Melly and Anna Beth were very old and ready to die when they were given an experimental treatment to make them young again. They were promised a chance to become young and stay at any age they wanted but the drug that was supposed to stop the aging has a serious side effect. Now Melly and Anna Beth are becoming younger each year and know that eventually they will be too young to even take care of themselves. They have to find someone to take care of them but first, they have to find a place to live where the institute who caused their problems in the first place can't find them. This book has an exciting premise and begins strong but wraps up a little too easily in the end.
