Returning to the beach cottage--a cottage named Scallop--where she has always celebrated her birthday is a special occasion for Alice Rice.

Who will see the first dolphin this time? The first pelican? What will have changed? Stayed the same? And will this be the year she finally finds a junonia shell?

Alice's friends are all returning, too. And she's certain her parents have the best party planned for her. Alice can't wait. If Alice is lucky, everything will be absolutely perfect. Will Alice be lucky?

Review quote

"Alice balances between familiarity and novelty, coziness and independence, self-centeredness and altruism--the balance beam of turning ten. . . . A fully realized, respectful portrait of a childhood milestone."--The Horn Book
