It's Amanda's 11th birthday and she is super excited -- after all, 11 is so different from 10. But from the start, everything goes wrong. The worst part of it all is that she and her best friend, Leo, with whom she's shared every birthday, are on the outs and this will be the first birthday they haven't shared together. When Amanda turns in for the night, glad to have her birthday behind her, she wakes up happy for a new day. Or is it? Her birthday seems to be repeating iself. What is going on?! And how can she fix it? Only time, friendship, and a little luck will tell. . .

This is the first book in the willow falls series written by Wendy Mass. In this book Amanda is NOT looking forward to her birthday. So when the day after her birthday is just her birthday again.. Amanda is a little more then confused. She knows the only person who will understand. Leo, her best friend who she's been ignoring for a year. Will Amanda be stuck in time forever? Read the book to find out!

This book reminds me about when I watched a movie (which I forgot the title) and it is about Flash trying to stop his day repeating over and over again. I liked this book quite well and I will read the next book in the series, called Finally.

I absolutely loveeeeeeeee this book!

I have to admit, I did not go in order. There are 5 books. 11 Birthdays, Finally, 13 Gifts, The Last Present (MY favorite), and Graceful. This book is narrated by Amanda my favorite character. It is about her and her ex BFF (he is a dude and NO THEY DO NOT HAVE A CRUSH ON EACH OTHER) going through some magicle happenings.

Amanda and Leo share birthdays. They have been best friends and even took their first steps together! Until their 10th birthday when something happens to ruin their friendship. A year later on their 11th birthday, everything goes wrong. When Amanda wakes up the next day, it's her birthday AGAIN!! At first she thinks it's a well played prank, but realizes the truth. After multiple days, she and Leo figure out it's happening to them both! With the help of (well not really because she didn't really tell them much) Angelina, who is an old but possibly magical person, they uncover their families' past. To find out how Amanda and Leo end their feud and break the curse of bring stuck on their birthday, read "11 Birthdays"!

I read this book in like 2 hours it was so good!

I read this book because my friend recommended it to me. It was soo good, I couldn't put it down. It is about a girl (Amanda) and a boy (Leo). They find themselves in a situation. Only their family legacies can lift the curse......

I love the realistic characters and story line. I also loved the idea of a magical city that even the residents did not know about! It kept me turning the pages!
