Rory Swenson has wanted to be twelve her entire life and finally her birthday is right around the corner. But her mother and father are not so keen on Rory growing up. Over the years of Rory's life she has kept a list of the things her parents said she can do when she turns twelve. So she shows her parents the list. Then her parents give in and one by one things get checked off the list, even though it is a rough time to make all those things happen.
I loved the book. It was so good, I could not stop reading it! It also had various funny parts like when people were calling this girl's cell phone trying to order pizza from Jonny's Pizzeria.
