An exciting new take on the bestselling Willow Falls series from middle-grade superstar Wendy Mass.

Amanda and Leo have a history with birthdays. Now their friend's little sister, Grace, has fallen into a strange frozen state on her birthday, and Amanda and Leo must travel in time in order to fix whatever's wrong. As they journey back to each of Grace's birthdays, they start seeing all sorts of patterns . . . which raise all sorts of questions.

Amanda and Leo are going to have to unravel the threads of the past and present - and travel much further than they ever imagined - if they're going to save Grace. Luckily, a little birthday magic always helps in the charming and funny Willow Falls series by Wendy Mass, where everything is possible and there are no coincidences.

WENDY MASS is the author of award-winning books for young readers, including 11 Birthdays, Finally, 13 Gifts, The Last Present, and the Twice Upon A Time Series: Rapunzel, The One With All The Hair; Sleeping Beauty, The One Who Took The Really Long Nap; and Beauty And The Beast, The Only One Who Didn't Run Away; as well as A Mango-Shap...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Fangirling I got an arc of this book through Chapters and also posted a review on Goodreads. I'm trying not to spoil it because I want everyone who loves the series to be surprised. In this perfect and stunning conclusion to the Willow Falls books we are back in the point of view of Amanda like in the first book (11 Birthdays). She and Leo learn that Grace is in a coma and they must travel back in time to her past birthdays in order to save her, with the help of Angelina and a little enchantment bestowed upon their great-great-grandfathers. The duo must help cast a spell that was to be cast on Grace on the day of her birth but failed, and they must do it three times before time runs out. But for some reason Grace's older brother Connor is messing up the spell and there's a strange man telling Amanda to stop saving Grace. Could this old man know that Grace is more special than Willow Falls can comprehend? Or is he plotting to send Grace, and maybe even Angelina, into an eternal rest? I absolutely adored the conclusion of this series, I laughed, I gasped, I fangirled. Truly a surprising and happy book, with surprising twists and turns, I wouldn't expect anything less from Wendy Mass. I'll miss Amanda and Leo, and their crazy adventures, I'll miss Rory, the girl who always loses her phones, and Tara and David, who are just beginning new chapters in their lives. I wish the book could be longer, but it ended off on such a perfect note, especially that last sentence. But like I said no spoilers.
