Meet Winnie, age 11. Winnie knows that “change” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when it means her best friend, Amanda, might be dropping her for someone else. Throw in a grumpy teenage sister, a cat who gets trapped in the wall, and a crush who has pinkeye, and Winnie decides that the rest of the world can do what it wants, but she’s going to remain exactly the same. But every month brings hilarious adventures and crazy ups and downs. A lot can change in a year, maybe even Winnie. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Offering a month-by-month account of Winnie’s eleventh year, this lighthearted and well-observed novel is sure to strike a familiar chord with girls on the brink of adolescence…Myracle shows particular skill at delineating the ways fifth- and sixth-grade girls form and reform their friendships, and the unspoken feelings between Amanda and Winnie fuel especially poignant moments. Myracle reworks familiar themes in a narrative that remains fresh and lively, inviting the audience to commiserate and laugh along with Winnie as she advances toward her twelfth year.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Myracle explores the hurts, small and not so small, of losing a lifetime friend in the same quiet way that Lynne Rae Perkins’ All Alone in the Universe does for teens. Fortunately, the protagonists’ discovery that love and trust can come from opening oneself to someone new compensates for such losses.”

    School Library Journal

  • “There is a good deal of humor in each carefully recorded incident…The tone is nuanced rather than madcap, quietly accurate and insightful rather than exaggerated and zany…Myracle definitely does justice to the small, painful, poignant moments of adolescence.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Myracle displays a good ear for the words, emotions, and angst of a tween…Girls will especially like this enjoyable novel that rings with preteen truth.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Lauren Myracle’s Eleven is an honest-to-goodness delight. I love Winnie. She grows, and we delight in that growth, which is what reading good books is all about. Great stuff from a fresh new voice.”

    Graham Salisbury, author of Lord of the Deep

    " this is a really wonderful story about friendship, finding oneself and has a great mystery intertwined--a quick read-read in one night--great for the 4th-8th grade reader and I really enjoyed it. Patricia Reilly Giff is an inspired writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Shannon Clark | 2/18/2014

    " This book was very hard to follow! The writing seemed sort of choppy, and the plot was drawn out a little too long in my opinion. The ending was not as intense or surprising as what I expected. I was very disappointed with this book. "
