13 Gifts (AR 13, Level 4.5. Order through Link+) by Wendy Mass continues the birthday book series. Be forewarned, fans of the birthday books, the author has written a darker-toned story from the other two titles.
The main character of this story, Tara, has been sent to Willow Falls because she committed a prank at school that has resulted in her suspension from school for two weeks. Of course, she soon runs into Angelina, the supernatural character who helps kids to find themselves. In this novel, Angelina has some serious lessons to teach Tara; she makes a dire prediction about Tara's future.
The caveat? She needs to find thirteen items before she turns 13 in two weeks! Luckily, Tara befriends characters from the other two novels: Leo, Amanda, Rory, and David. Does Tara find all of the items in time? Read the book to find out.
