Sometimes Josie wonders what other people are thinking, and in this uniquely constructed novel, readers "leap" into the minds and viewpoints of Josie and everyone around her as she goes through her day. Josie learns that birthday surprises, play auditions, and the all-important initiation at the lake may be the things that define her today, but what defines her tomorrow and in the days to come are the people that touch her life at every moment. This fascinating and surprising novel, now in paperback, is full of everyday imaginations and truths in the life and future of one everygirl teenager.

    This is a book written by the author Wendy Mass. This book is really different than any other book you may have read, becuase the format is very different. In this book, it follows Josie, a girl who is about to turn 16... well really 4, since she was born on Leap Day and her birthday only rolls around every 4 years.This book follows her through her 16th birthday, but also tells different parts of the story from all different perspectives. Read the book to find out more! Happy Reading!

        Really great! Not for younger kids though, kind of a tween book.
