Starting with her birthday in March, every chapter brings a new month and a new event in Winnie's life. From surviving her teenage sister's grumpy mood swings in April to dealing with prissy new rival Gail Grayson in September, there's a calendar full of ups and downs of being eleven years old. Especially hard for Winnie is the growing distance between herself and her best friend, Amanda, as both girls grow into different social circles. The big and little moments of Winnie's year are captured with honesty and warmth, and her sharp observations and infectious enthusiasm make for hilarious storytelling. Eleven-year-olds of all ages will discover themselves in this winning young heroine on the brink of adolescence.

The book Eleven by Luaren Myricle was a very good book. The book is about a girl named Winnie who has just turned 11 and learns change can be hard. Her freind Angy is begining to outgrow her because there is a new girl named gail and angy thinks she likes her better but winnie realy hates her and her big sister is trying to give her advice with her boyfreind. Soon she has a new best friend named Dana who most peaple think she is wierd and unnotisable. they live in atlantas and go to school. I thought the auther did well on understanding 10 to11 year old girls on changing, and making new best freinds. I thought the auther could of done better on explaining more and describing more because she realy didn`t explain a whole lot. I recomend this book to 10 to11 year old girls because it teaches you that change can happen and you cant stop it. i give this book 4 stars.

Winnie has just turned eleven, and she's drifting away from her best friend, Amanda, who's starting to act mature and becoming friends with Gail, a mean girl who thinks she's better than everyone else. But after a while, she learns to accept that she and Amanda aren't best friends anymore and moves on.

This is a cute-and sometimes touching-story about friendship, and I would recommend it to any eleven-year-old girl.
