Buy Happy Birthday to Me

Seventeen-year-old Cameron Martin has a huge problem: he’s aging a whole year of his life with each passing day. High school is hard enough; imagine rapidly aging from seventeen to seventy in a matter of weeks, with no logical explanation, and with prom, graduation, and the state championship basketball game on the horizon. That’s what happens to Cameron, a mischievous pretty boy who has never had to face a day looking anything but perfect. It starts with a slowing metabolism, followed by gray hair, wrinkles, and heart palpitations. Within days his girlfriend dumps him, his plastic surgeon father forces him to get a facelift, and his terrifying high school librarian seduces him to have sex with her. All he wants to do is go back to normal, but no one, not even the best doctors, can diagnose his condition. When he finds love with a young woman who may or may not be an all-powerful witch, he realizes that the only hope for his survival might be with the one person who instigated his condition in the first place... 

What I thought:

 This was pretty enjoyable. I was able to read it all in one sitting, the intriguing story line kept me glued to my Kindle until I read the whole thing. I rarely read books from the male POV and I enjoyed the switch up. It was different to see the story from the other side.

The premise, was very intriguing. Cam goes through all the emotions. At first, it's not so bad (except for the belly bulge). He looks more grown up and he thinks that this just might be the ticket to help him get with his girlfriend. But it doesn't last long. Confusing, anger, fear, depression all come into play. It's no picnic. What I really enjoyed about this novel was, Cam really started to open his eyes to his life and decided that he can change. Maybe not the growing old part, but how he treats others.

I'm not sure what is in store next for this Trilogy, but that is what I like most. I definitely plan on reading the next. I think this is a refreshing change of pace in the YA genre. It doesn't blend and fade. It sticks out and it's a great read.
