Anyone who has attended one of my writing workshops has probably read the short-story "Eleven" with me. Sandra Cisneros is an amazingly vivid writer and this story from Woman Hollering Creek is one of my favorites.
As a result, I often see companion writing that could be used with this story - whether similar in style or topic. And, thanks to my ever growing RSS feed, I found this one: 11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass. It looks like a great storyline (and also reminds me of one of my favorite movies: Groundhog Day!!)
