11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass

11 BirthdaysCan you imagine reliving the same day over and over and over again?  That's exactly what happens to Amanda and Leo, best friends who happen to share the same birthday, in the book 11 Birthdays.  Sadly, on their tenth birthdays, they have a disagreement that results in a year-long separation.  On their eleventh birthdays, something really weird happens - they keep repeating the day over and over.  At first they don't realize that it's happening to the other person too, but when they do, they go on many adventures trying to unravel the mysterious time loop that they've been caught up in.

At first, you think this story is realistic fiction (I did!), but before long you realize that this book is  fantasy, complete with an enchantress named Angelina who has a very unusual birthmark on her cheek.

11 Birthdays is mostly about friendship, but it's also about family, mystery, fantasy, and FUN!  The story keeps you wondering just how, or even if, they are going to break the spell.  You don't find out until the very end what's going to happen, so this book is very hard to put down once you start reading.  I guarantee you'll start wondering how you would feel if you were caught in this weird never-ending time loop.
