“Rory Swenson has been waiting her whole life to turn 12. Finally, she'll be allowed to stay up late, go shopping with friends, and experiment with makeup. As all Rory's plans go hilariously awry, this comic romp reminds us to be careful what we wish for.”
-- Erin Cooper, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

You can pierce your ears when you're twelve. You can go to the mall with your friends when you're twelve. You can babysit little Timmy next door when you're twelve. You can get a cell phone when you're twelve. Hey, you can even ride in the front passenger-side seat when you're twelve.

When you're twelve, when you're twelve, when you're twelve . . .

My name is Rory Swenson, and I've been waiting to turn twelve my whole life. In exactly 18 hours, 36 minutes, and 52 seconds, it will finally happen.

My life will officially begin.
