Amanda and Leo were born on the same day and same hospital, and for the past 10 years they have been not only celebrated their birthdays together but they have been best friends.

They are unable to move pass the 11th birthday day and the day keeps repeating itself over and over. Amanda and Leo relive their 11th birthday 11 times and as they do, they change and grow and learn from their actions.

The characters are funny, real, and extremely engaging.
