Becky is sure that turning ten on the tenth day of the tenth month will be magical. The whole class is invited to her party, including Chad, the cutest boy in the fifth grade. So is Darlenie-the-Meanie. Becky wants to look cute for her party, but all her plans soon go wrong. Really wrong. The magic of turning ten disappears before she even has a chance to blow out her birthday candles. Things get so bad, she refuses to go to her own party. Becky wonders if the Curse of the Double Digits will jinx her forever.

Would you listen to Curse of the Double Digits again? Why?

My 7 year old was intrigued by this story, and I'm sure she'll relate to it even more so as she gets older, so we'll be sure to listen again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

We empathized with and were hoping for things to turn out good for the main character from the beginning and throughout the story.

What does Amanda Terman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Amanda has such a clear, engaging rhetoric that it was a joy to listen.

Any additional comments?

My normally wiggly 7 year old was glued to her seat, listening intently for what will happen next. We talked about the story for the days to come.
