11 Birthdays-A Book Review

10 Mar

11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass 

Summary-Amanda and Leo have always had their birthday parties together, until this year. When they were one they learned to walk, and when they were five they painted homemade pots and planted seeds. After a big fight on their tenth birthday the two former friends wouldn’t speak to each other. For the first time they are having their own parties, but then everything goes wrong! Amanda and Leo find themselves stuck in the same day over and over again, and they don’t know how to stop it. Could this mysterious happening have to do with the old Angelina who has been in the sleepy town of Willow Falls for what seems like forever?

My Thoughts: Wendy Mass is an amazing author, and I couldn’t wait to start reading this series. The concept was really interesting, but parts of the story were confusing. Amanda was a good character, but Leo wasn’t my favorite. I felt that he was kind of bossy, but he did help convince Amanda to try out for the marching band. Stephanie was a good friend, but I felt she was kind of clueless to what Amanda wanted. I wish her character was in the story more. Angelina was so mysterious and confusing! I want to find out more about her in the next book in the series. The writing was well done, but keeping track of all the birthdays was so puzzling! It was a good read, full of fun and suspense, and I give it three and three quarter stars out of five!
