11 Birthdays

Written by: Wendy Mass

First line: The oddest thing about Angelina D'Angelo was that no one could remember a time when she didn't live in Willow Falls.

Why you should read this book: Amanda and Leo have always celebrated their birthdays together, but this year is different: Amanda hasn't spoken to Leo since she heard him talking smack about her at their tenth birthday party, and her eleventh birthday is looking like the most horrible one ever. What's worse is that every time the day finally ends, it starts over again when she wakes up in the morning, so that Amanda is trapped in the worst day of her life, celebrating an awful eleventh birthday over and over again. When she realizes that Leo is trapped in the same nightmare, they must resolve their differences and delve into the history of their town and their respective families to learn how to escape the loop and get on with their eleventh year.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You've been feuding with your former best friend, and it's going to take a lot more than divine intervention for you to forgive them.
