A special birthday
by Wendy Mass
Mildly delinquent behaviour gets Tara Brennan banished to Willow Falls to stay with relatives she hardly knows. It doesn't take long for Tara to realize that strange things happen in Willow Falls, especially after an encounter with Angelina D'Angelo. The old woman gives her a job: Tara has to collect thirteen objects before her thirteenth birthday. If she doesn't, she risks doing irreparable harm to her immortal soul.
Tara gets help from a bunch of new friends, turning her treasure hunt into something much deeper. By the time it ends, Tara will have figured out that some actions have world-changing consequences, and that everyone, even herself, can repair the broken shards.
A book that'll make readers laugh, think, and wonder.
