When trying to make friends 12 year old Tara Brennan is convinced into breaking into her school to steal a goat while armed with pepper spray. As punishment her parents decide to send her to the sleepy little town of Willow Falls to set her straight. When she arrives there she tells lie after lie, day after day. To make sure no one knows the real reason she’s there she must find 13 mysterious gifts before her quickly approaching 13 birthday. While finding the objects she meets a lot of strange and not so strange people like David who sings at the bottom of an empty pool, a girl who may be dating a teen movie star, or two friend who talk to each other using blackboards, and her 11 year old cousin who last time she saw her ate an entire stick of glue. But that willow falls for you, anything is possible and nothing is as it seems. I really liked this book because it was really mysterious. I would recommend this book for people who like a good mystery. I would also recommend it for people who like a book with lots of twists and turns.
