11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass, 267 pages, read by Angie, on 10/27/2012

Amanda and Leo are born on the same day and they always celebrate their birthdays together. They are best friends until their 10th birthday when Leo says some hurtful things about Amanda. They don’t speak for an entire year. Then comes their 11 birthdays; their first birthday apart. Suddenly they are reliving that day over and over again. They have to figure out why and how to fix it.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are well developed and great. I think Wendy Mass really knows 11 year olds because these guys seem pretty accurate to me. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator was great. I really enjoyed how Amanda changed the day each time she relived it and the consequences of doing so.
