What can I say? I loved this book! It is mostly about Josie who turns 16 on Leap Day. Then it goes into the heads of all the people who come in contact with her on that day. It made me look at everyone in my school differently--like I just never thought of how my life effected theirs just by having a locker next to them or whatever. The book was also really funny and made me want to go to Disney World which is where some of it takes place.

My birthday is on a leap day too so it made the book really enjoyable for me to read! :) It was also written in the style of a diary which was nice.

I absolutly LOVED this book. I really don't love to read but when i beagn reading this i couldn't put it down. I read it last summer and it made all the long car rides I had EXTREMLY ENTERTAINING! I loved this book because i could definilty relate to it, and i think that most teenage girls can also.

I thought this book was excellent! I happend to turn 16 the day I was reading this book so I could relate to Josie. At first I thought it would be boring to go inside everyone else's head, I figured I would just be reading the same thing but from a different person's perspective. But I soon learned that it actually was interesting. Wendy Mass wrote the book wonderfully. I recommend this book to all ages, especially teens.

Josie is finally turning sixteen, but here¿s the catch. It is actually Josie¿s fourth birthday! Josie was born on a leap year, so her birthday only comes every four years. In this story, you will experience a day with Josie as she goes through some tough times and as she maters things. Josie will also learn some new things that day about her family, friends, and even herself that she never knew. And, on everybody¿s sixteenth birthday they go out to the lake for a party. What happens at the lake stays at the lake. Read Leap Day and find out those things about Josie and her friends and family. Also find out what goes down at the lake. Some of these things may surprise you! What I liked about the book was that at the beginning it grabbed my attention and it never lost it. I also liked that the book would switch point of views. The chapter had two sections, A and B. Josie¿s point of view would be section A, and everybody that was involved in section A would tell their point of view in section B. I would recommend this book to girls. There are a lot of parts that are really girly that a guy would probably not like.

God people are so annoying! "This is so innapropriate" " parents beware" like grow up. Just because they say boobs or sex or smoke doesnt mean its not a good book. And if 10 year olds are reading this and freaking out because they see the word breasts, put an age limit in the reiviews! Help me here! click yes if you agree!

Wendy Mass' books have always astounded me; but this one was a bit discomforting. I only reccomend this if you are okay with things such as "girl issues" and accidental pregnancy. It is not a bad book; it is just meant for mature people. Jessica the bug freak

I read the sample, and some of it is inapropriate. From what i hear it is inapropriate too. Normally wendy mass books are good or okay, but i really dont think this is a good book. If you do still want to read it i would recommend checking it out at the library instead of paying for the whole book. If you want you can hook your nook up to your librarys website ang check books out on your nook.

I'm a sophomore in high school and I read this book in the seventh grade. After the many, many, many, MANY books I've read this one is still in my top five. I'll love this book forever and it will remain in my top five as the years progress. I was never able to reread it because it came from my school library so I think you should buy it so you can have it forever and enjoy it time and time again!

p.s. The book is freakin awesome!!!!!!!

I really liked this book. It really gave me a different perspective on other people and how they think. I read a lot of the reviews that said that it was an innapropriate book, its just for an older audience (so give it some time). All in all, this was a great book and I hope Wendy Mass comes with more books like such!

I <3 tis book its so good i love how there is first Josies perspective and then the other peoples that is so clever :'( cried about Missy but about the matureness of this book it is pretty mature; i.e. a girl goes into labor there is lots of talk about breasts, stuff like that. I'd say this is a wonderful TWEEN drama about friendship but honestly you should be around 11 or 12 to read this it depends on what kinds of things you are allowed to read ps if you like this book try reading The Clique series by Lisi Harrison :) funny and dramatic!!!
