Amanda and Leo have a history with birthdays. Now their friend's little sister, Grace, has fallen into a strange frozen state on her birthday, and Amanda and Leo must travel in time in order to fix whatever's wrong. As they journey back to each of Grace's birthdays, they start seeing all sorts of patterns . . . which raise all sorts of questions.

Amanda and Leo are going to have to unravel the threads of the past and present -- and travel much further than they ever imagined -- if they're going to save Grace. Luckily, a little birthday magic always helps in the charming and funny Willow Falls series by Wendy Mass, where everything is possible and there are no coincidences.

The last present was incredible, I really loved this book. especially because we got to read from Amanda's point of view again.

I enjoyed reading all the predecessors of The Last Present, so I had really high expectations for this book and The Last Present just smashed them all. I loved all the humor in the books, I found myself laughing a lot. I really appreciate humor in a book, it makes for a fun read. 

I know this book was intended to be the last book in the series (hence the name) so I guess that's maybe why I felt like Wendy Mass was trying to finish a bunch story lines in The Last Present, it felt kind of over stuffed.

Even though I'm super excited to read Graceful I feel like The Last Present would have been a nice finale to The Willow Falls series, ending the series with a book told by the original character(s) would have made for a very nice touch.
