Amanda and Leo were born on the same day and have always celebrated their birthdays together until, at their 10th birthday party, Amanda overhears Leo with his friends say some unkind things about her. She gets angry and refuses to talk to him ever again! Their 11th birthday will be Amanda’s and Leo’s first one with separate parties. That means their friends will have to choose – and choose they do. Imagine Amanda’s surprise when she wakes up the day after her birthday and events begin repeating themselves. What’s happening? On the “third” day, she tests her theory and stays home from school. No matter what she does, she is stuck on her 11th birthday. When Amanda discovers the same thing is happening to Leo, they must combine forces to figure out how to break the cycle – but what’s the harm in having a little fun first? (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
