Reviews

Gr 5-8-On Winnie Perry's 13th birthday, she and her two best friends celebrate with makeovers at a swanky cosmetic counter. Over the course of the book, they stick up for and stand up to one another. Boys are also big on the social radar. The most touching scenes involve Winnie's family. Her sister is about to leave for college, and her six-year-old brother is baffled by the world, and watching a friend battle leukemia. Their mom is pregnant and overwhelmed, and her dad is calmly trying to keep everyone smiling, with tender and hilarious results. Each chapter is dedicated to one month of Winnie's 13th year, and the focus is on navigating tricky relationships. Winnie narrates in a convincing 13-year-old voice, and the characterizations of her friends are equally well done. This heartfelt and entertaining book follows Eleven (2004) and Twelve (2007, both Dutton), but it can be enjoyed on its own.-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

The contemporary voice is casual, funny, and well, nice. Fans of Judy Blume will want this. -Booklist
