This novel, "11 Birthdays" by Wendy Mass was amazing, and I recommend it to anyone who likes realistic fiction with just a touch of fantasy. This is an incredible novel that had me on my toes from cover to cover!
I really enjoyed this intriguing story because it shows the reader that it is okay to forgive a mistake, and allows readers to really understand the plot and the characters by explaining everything about the characters’ past. This book had no unnecessary details, and stuck to the plot for the entire story.
I could also really relate to the main character, Amanda, in "11 Birthdays" because she did not only experience magical things such as her birthday repeating, but she faced problems a regular fifth grade girl would, such as a big fight with her best friend. This made the whole book more interesting to me.
Overall, this wonderful book was a really great read. I also recommend reading the next two books in the series, "12 Finally" and "13 Wishes" by Wendy Mass. I really enjoyed Amanda’s story of friendship, forgiveness, and repeating birthdays.
I hope you give this book a try... You won't regret it!
