Megan’s Great-grandmother Breckenridge has lived in three centuries.  She was born in 1899 and now it is 2001.  On the first day of 2001, Megan is annoyed that she and her mother are going to visit Great-grandmother Breckenridge in an Elder Care Facility.  By the end of her visit, Megan’s feelings and opinions about Great-grandmother Breckenridge have changed from distaste and avoidance to eagerness to know her better.
