Great friendships and first crushes-WISH books are for the tweens who love stories with heart!

Welcome back to Willow Falls, where anything is possible and nothing is at it seems!

Tara's parents send her to the sleepy town of Willow Falls to stay with relatives she hardly knows, including her strange younger cousin Emily. Tara quickly learns that Emily isn't even remotely the strangest person in town.

In fact, Tara finds herself beholden to perhaps the strangest person of all: Angelina D'Angelo. If Tara can't collect thirteen mysterious objects for the old woman in time for her thirteenth birthday, the consequences will be REALLY BAD. With a big dose of birthday magic, Tara's adventures take her and her new friends to places they never thought they'd find, some in the real world, and a lot deep inside themselves.

Wendy Mass is the author of award-winning books for young readers, including 11 Birthdays, Finally, 13 Gifts, The Last Present and Graceful, and the Twice Upon a Time series. She lives with her family in New Jersey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining This book had the perfect tone set for a teenager (from experience) and it made a good read for the weekend. Though it was a light read, it was still very interesting and mood lifting to read. i would recommend this to teenagers as they would connect well with the characters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great book from the Willow Falls series! I got this book at my school "Buy One Get One Free" book fair, and I've read it at least five times. "13 Gifts" is, like the rest of the Willow Falls Series, chock-full of humor and suspense. Tara discovers a family secret that's been hidden for at least 13 years. I love the mystery!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for 13 Gifts*"Mass keeps the plot jumping like a fireworks display; there's one surprise spark after another, all coming together at the end for a breathtaking finale." -School Library Journal, starred review"In equal parts philosophical and wryly humorous, this magical tale will satisfy both fans and new readers alike." -KirkusPraise for Finally"Rory's chatty, friendly voice and relentless optimism in the face of her many mishaps are heartwarming." -Publishers Weekly"Growing up doesn't have to happen all at once, and it isn't always all it's cracked up to be . . . Mass provides a pretty entertaining and solidly worthwhile read." -KirkusPraise for 11 Birthdays*"From the double-entendre title to the solid character portrayals to the clarity and wit of the writing, this novel offers a fresh twist on the familiar themes of middle-grade family and school dynamics." -Booklist, starred review*"Mass's expertise with pacing keeps the story moving at a lively clip, and her understanding of this age group is as finely honed as ever." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
