11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass

11 Birthdays was recommended to me both by a former student and by my own 12-year-old daughter. It is the story of Amanda and Leo, a girl and a boy who have been best friends practically since birth and who have celebrated their mutual birthday together every year...until now. This is because of something that Leo said on their tenth birthday that Amanda cannot forgive. Neither one is looking forward to their eleventh birthday party, their first party without each other. And then something really mysterious happens: time gets stuck and everyday is their birthday all over again.

Both boys and girls will enjoy reading this unusual story about forgiveness and friendship. Perfect for those who like a bit of fantasy mixed into their realistic fiction!
