When you're 12, you can pierce your ears. You can go to the mall with your friends-without parents. You can baby-sit little Timmy next door, get a cell phone, and even ride in the front passenger-side seat. Rory Swenson has been waiting to turn 12 her whole life, and in exactly 18 hours, 36 minutes, and 52 seconds, it will finally happen. Her life will begin...or will it?
When Tara, a self-proclaimed shrinking violet, steals the school mascot (a goat) in order to make friends with the popular crowd, she gets herself in a heap of trouble.

Tara thinks it's a good time to start over. After all, she'll be turning 13, so she might as well make the best of a bad vacation. What Tara doesn't know is that this charmed town has something big in store for her on her 13th birthday. It's not a typical birthday. Then again, nothing in Willow Falls is exactly typical!« less
