13 Gifts (11 Birthdays, #3)

Shortly before her thirteenth birthday, shy and withdrawn Tara is sent to stay with her aunt, uncle, and cousin in her parents’ hometown of Willow Falls, where she makes friends and becomes involved with an elderly buyer and seller of collectibles, who seems to be trying to give Tara some kind of mysterious message.

The residents of Willow Falls are back and up to the strange happenings of the first 2 books in this series.  I’ve read the first but skipped the second and will now have to go back to see what happened to the characters that I missed but have set up part of the story.  I’m not sure anyone would truly understand what is going on without having at least read the first book to be introduced to everyone.  I enjoyed it and it will most likely just appeal to girls, although there are boys in the story.
