Call number: Y Fiction
After celebrating their first nine same-day birthdays together, Amanda and Leo, having fallen out on their tenth and not speaking to each other for the last year, prepare to celebrate their eleventh birthday separately but peculiar things begin to happen as the day of their birthday begins to repeat itself over and over again.
Reviews & Summaries
The first book, 11 Birthdays, starts out with two characters named Amanda and Leo. They used to be best friends, but since their tenth birthday party they have been in a fight. Now it is their eleventh birthday, and something mysterious happens. The next day is their birthday all over again. Amanda and Leo have to work together to figure out what’s going on.
The second book, 12 Finally, is about a girl named Rory who can’t wait to turn 12. She will finally be able to do all sorts of things that she couldn’t do when she was 11. But when she actually is 12, she learns it’s not as cool as she thought it was going to be. Odd things start to happen whenever she tries to do all the things she is now allowed to do. She meets Amanda, Leo, and a bunch of other very odd people, and they help her realize what is more important than being 12.
The third book, 13 Gifts, is probably my favorite book in the series. It is exciting right from the beginning, when Tara, a girl who mostly keeps to herself as a result of moving so much, is suspended from her school for trying to steal the principal’s goat and spraying him with a can of pepper spray. She is forced by her parents to go visit her aunt and uncle’s house in Willow Falls for the summer. There she becomes involved in an odd mission for an odd lady. She has to collect 13 random objects from all around town before her 13th birthday. Amanda, Leo, Rory, and some of their friends help her, and at the end there is a big surprise where Tara learns a lot about her family and herself.
I really liked these three books. They were really compelling; the kind of books that you can’t stop reading, and there were really funny parts too. I would recommend them just about anybody who’s looking for a really good new series to read.
It's probably kinda late but some unusual things are that the same day repeats over and over again...
and maybe that Anastasia has been there forever...
anyway, it is a super good book!
read it on your eleventh birthday:)
