Excited to turn twelve? Wishing that it would happen so you can do all of the things your parents have promised you you could do when you’re twelve?

This is exactly what Rory Swenson wants. If she could have her wish, she would automatically turn twelve, and then she would be able to do everything her parents have been promising her over the years. “You can get a pet when your twelve, you can get your ears pierced when your twelve….” She’s even been making a list about things she can do when she’s twelve.

But when Rory finally gets to do everything on her list, she realizes the tough life that twelve year olds have, and the perils that she experiances speak for that. Read Rory’s obstical course of becoming a twelv-year-old!

      I love both of them but I do agree that 11 Birthdays was a
      bit better.
