"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"
Reading Level 9 (Original Text)
But one day a few weeks after his twelfth birthday, while looking in the mirror, Benjamin made, or thought he made, an astonishing discovery. Did his eyes deceive him, or had his hair turned in the dozen years of his life from white to iron-gray under its concealing dye? Was the network of wrinkles on his face becoming less pronounced? Was his skin healthier and firmer, with even a touch of ruddy winter colour? He could not tell.

Were his wrinkles beginning to smooth out? Was his skin healthier and firmer, with even some redness to it? He could not tell.
