11 Birthdays

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Welcome to Willow Falls, where everything's possible with a little birthday magic!

On their first birthday, they learned to walk. On their fifth, they planted seeds in handmade pots. On their tenth, they learned there are some words you can never take back.

Amanda's eleventh birthday should be a happy occasion. Instead she'd dressed in an itchy costume her mother picked out for her boring Hollywood-themed party. Meanwhile, across town, her ex-best friend Leo is celebrating their joint birthday with a huge bash including a hypnotist, a football star, a giant iguana, and a band. SO not fair!

Amanda can't wait for the day AFTER her birthday so she can stop thinking about the fight that led her and Leo to have separate parties for the first time in their lives. There's just one problem. The next day is her birthday all over again.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 22, 2008 – Like a Groundhog Day for middle grade readers, Mass's (Every Soul a Star) winning story features a girl seemingly trapped in her 11th birthday. Amanda seems doomed to relive her failed try-out for the gymnastics team, her mother being fired from her job and, worst of all, the party that even her best friend leaves early to go to the party hosted by her former friend, Leo. The two have celebrated every previous birthday together (they were born on the same day), but a misunderstanding on their 10th has gone unresolved. After several repeats of the day, Amanda and Leo realize they are in this mess together and must work as a team. Girls will relate to Amanda's insecurities, and the confidence and insights she gains will resonate with them. 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. Ages 9 12.

Amazing read!

One of my all-time favorite books. Give to any 10 - 17 year old.


I only read 5 pages and I loved it SO MUCH ALREADY!!
If only I had the money 😢.


- the girl 😁


I'm in sixth grade and it was always taken me forever to pick a book out in the library sense kindergarten. I couldn't find a book on my frost visit to the middle school library,so my teacher showed me this and I was like ok how bad could it be. I WAS WRONG!!!! IT WASN'T BAD AT ALL!! 😄😄😄 I still wanted to read this book when I had to go to bed,so I was "savage" and finished the book in the bathroom! XD If I had to pick some books to recommend it would totally be this book!( and Out of my Mind) I also thought that if Amanda and Leo where ACTUAL people and not in a book, they would totally me the cutest couple alive and she doesn't need the postcards because they will already in touch because they will be married!! 😄😄😄😄😄
