I thought that this book beautifully explained some of the things a child may go through as they grow up to become teenagers and how their emotions change along the way when their family or friends treat them differently. This book is about a boy who is turning twelve and his expectations for a birthday party. Although this book has colourful illustrations and may seem like a good read for children, adults like us too can relate to the story.

A 4.5 star for this short book
