Happy Birthday to Me (Birthday Trilogy, #1)

Happy Birthday to Me (Birthday Trilogy, #1) - Brian  Rowe I'd seen this one around a lot a few months ago so when I got an opportunity to review it, I jumped at the chance. A story about someone who ages a year every day? Sounds fantastic! It was just as good as I hoped too – the narrative is simple but effective, the plot runs along smoothly and not too slowly (or too fast!) and the ending nearly made me cry. Nearly! I enjoyed watching the different characters develop and change throughout, which strangely enough doesn't happen that often in YA books. Cameron had the most development of course, mentally as well physically. He started off as a typical jock, pretending it was his birthday just to get free cake and as the story progressed went from one extreme to the other – learning the error of his ways and trying to make changes to getting violently drunk and crashing his Prom.
