You can read the Goodreads summary here.

In this extremely dramatic third and final novella in the Birthday Trilogy, we find Cameron and Liesel where we left them.  Everyone in the world is aging a year per day and they have to find Liesel's evil sister Hannah to stop the madness as soon as they can.  Of course, on top of that Liesel's pregnant!  Yikes!

This was the most action packed book out of the three.  It was hard to put it down when one thing kept happening after another at such a frantic pace - and it should be frantic!  Everyone is aging at an insane rate and Cameron and Liesel have to stop it before everyone dies prematurely of old age.

I think what I enjoyed the most were the interspersed chapters dealing with how this tragedy was affecting average citizens.  There was a woman whose cancer spread in two days instead of two years, for example. We even got to see how this aging process affected Cameron's family.  These scenes were just as dramatic as the action scenes.

If you haven't started the Birthday Trilogy yet, I have to ask you - what are you waiting for?  These books are getting really popular and they're very reasonably priced in both the Nook and Kindle formats.  You're missing out, so pick up the first book today!
