What the Critics Say

"Emboldened by the idea of daily do-overs, [Amanda] discovers that small changes in her attitude and actions result in sometimes-subtle, sometimes-monumental shifts in results for herself, her family, and her friends. A rewarding choice for readers and a natural for booktalks and discussion groups." (Booklist)

In the words of a 9 yr old

What made the experience of listening to 11 Birthdays the most enjoyable?

My name is Jackson, and I read this book for Battle of the books. I am 9. I thought it was going to be a girly book, but it wasn't. It was really good. I liked the person who read it. They had great voices and made it sound real. I liked the way the book left you wondering what would happen next. You were rooting for the two main characters the whole time. you wanted them to succeed. You'd think it would be boring to repeat a day, but this book was not boring. It had us all hooked.


What did you like best about this story?

I liked the twist. You'll have to read it to see what I mean. No spoliers from me.


Which character – as performed by Kathleen McInerney – was your favorite?

The old lady with the duck shaped birthmark!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It builds up and resets so much. I didn't cry, but I yelled out frustrated every time the day repeated.


Any additional comments?

You should read it! You wont be disappointed.
