Birthday: A Novel


One Day meets The Sun Is Also a Star in this unconventional love story told by the award-winning author of If I Was Your Girl, Meredith Russo

The stars align when two very different kids, Morgan and Eric, are born in the same hospital on the same day, setting into motion a series of events that’ll shape who they are and who they’re destined to become. They’re best friends who will come together, drift apart, kiss, fall in love, and ultimately, discover how much fate has in store for them.

The follow-up to If I Was Your Girl, Meredith Russo’s beloved and acclaimed debut, Birthday is a novel told in six years of snapshots of the characters’ birthdays, peeling back the bittersweet layers in this slice of life romance.

If I Was Your Girl is important and necessary and brave, and deeply, electrically inspiring. We should all walk in Amanda's shoes, whether we think we can relate to her or not. Because who can't relate to a story about having the courage to be the person you were meant to be? Read this wonderful book. Just read it.
