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 . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely LOVED this novel! I bought this book a month ago and I'm SO glad I did. "11 Birthdays" is my new favorite book. I like the idea of a repeating day, I never would have thought of that. The book is funny, serious and touching at the same time, and it's very rare to find a book with all of those elements. I recommend this book to people who like humorous novels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! Heyyyyyyyyyy !!! I found that this book was amazing. It was about a girl who has been celebrating her birthday with a boy named Leo for 10 entire years. On their 10th birthday she over hears Leo and his friends talking about how Leo kind of thinks its stupid that they spend their bdays together!!! She feels sooo bad that she runs away and hasnt spoken to Leo since. Now its their 11th birthday and she is having a stupid HOLLYWOOD themed bday party while Leo is having a party with a rock band, iguana and more. As bad as that sounds for her ... when she thinks that her birthday is over....it is'nt!!!! The next day it starts all over again. Just like deja vu. Hope this helped and i recommend that you should read this book!
