cover image of 11 BirthdaysA really, really fun read! It’s sort of Groundhog Day for the middle-grades set. Best friends since birth, Amanda and Leo were born on the same day eleven years ago. They have celebrated their birthday together ever since. But on their tenth birthday, Amanda overheard something, and they have not spoken to one another for a year. Now, Amanda is stuck in a loop, waking up on the morning of her 11th birthday over and over again. It’s going to take all of her sleuthing skills and imagination, plus some help from an old friend, to get things unstuck.
