Winnie is thrilled to be eleven and determined that this will be her year, but from her birthday onward, her year seems to have other plans. From birthday plans gone askew and a secret crush to mean-girl Gail stealing her best friend, Winnie must learn to deal with the changes in both herself and her friends that being eleven brings. And then there’s obnoxious Dinah, who may be just the friend Winnie’s been looking for after all.
Review:An easy read for preteen girls with a heroine just like them.
