13 on Halloween  - Laura A.H. Elliott

A fast fun very enjoyable read. Roxie is a 12 year old girl on the night of her13th birthday.  She wants has an OK life a family and a best friend but wants to be popular. What she calls "a peacock".

 

During her 13th birthday party her wish in a way is granted by a special birthday present. But all us not as it seems. 

 

Lots of fun and Roxie us a unique quirky character who is very easy to identify with. During  the book she learns some truths about growing up and has to come to terms with something about life in the popular crowd. There's a fun paranormal element too. 

 

A delightful read. 

 

Also crossing off another square for Book Bingo - a child narrator. In my eyes a just turned 13 year old is still a child.
