11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass
11 Birthdays is in modern time (although time does stop.....maybe..).
The setting is in a suburb; Willow Falls. Willow Falls is quite a strange Place (if you know what I mean...).
"....Mass's expertise with pacing keeps the story moving at a lively clip, and her understanding of this age group is as finely honed as ever."
-Publishers Weekly
For the first time in forever they will have separate parties because Leo said some mean words on their 10th birthday party. Amanda is suck wearing an itchy costume for her party but Leo is celebrating his birthday with a huge party including a hypnotist, a football star, a giant iguana, and a rock band. SO not fair!
Amanda can't wait for her birthday to be over! But she's in for a nasty surprise; the next day is her birthday again!
Amanda and Leo's 11th birthday is here.....

-Kirkus Reviews

is light and warm. The story is touching and sometimes funny.
Amanda and Leo try to sort out their friendship. Amanda learns how important friends are and what she has been missing out on in the last year. Being mad at Leo only made her unhappy.
So my alarm clock goes off and I'm like why's it going off on a Saturday.

Then my mom and my sister are acting weird, telling me to get up, and saying it's my birthday.
It can't be my birthday. It was yesterday, right?
The weirdest day ever!

Amanda leans to put the past behind her and move on. She has to forgive Leo if she wants to get her friend back.
(According to Amanda)
"Why is it ALWAYS my birthday, and never the day AFTER my birthday?!"
