Pi in the Sky free preview!!

Well, you asked to read the first chapter…how about the first SEVEN chapters? The full book won’t be out until June 11th, but my ever-so-kind publisher is offering this sneak peek early. It’s like a third of the book!

If you have any kind of e-reader it’s easy to order it directly from whoever provides your ebooks, or Amazon (and probably other places) allows you to read it right on your computer as well. When you look it up make sure to add “preview” to the title or else you’ll just get sent to the regular book. It should look like this:

Pi in the Sky - FREE PREVIEW EDITION (The First 7 Chapters)

I can’t wait to hear what you think!

On another note, I can’t thank you all enough for your amazing insights on The Candymakers movie!! I’m still trying to keep up with posting all of them, and i had to leave out some due to spoilers, but the screenwriter sees all of them, so never fear. The Last Present is totally complete now, and off to press! I’m pretty sure i got all of your wonderful suggestions in there.

You guys are the BEST!!

      I also loved the preview I read it in a magazine! I’m in 5th grade and since in 3rd when I read 11 birthdays I have been blown away by her books! Wendy you my favorite! I hope they will make movies to 11 birthdays, finally, and 13 gifts! I LOVE those books! I CAN’T WAIT TO READ PI IN THE SKY!!!!!!!!

      • Wendy Mass on September 11, 2013 at 11:39 am

        Hi Amina! That’s cool that you read a preview–do you remember what mag?
        Enjoy PI! :o)

    • Amina on August 30, 2013 at 8:49 pm

      Hey Wendy! I was wondering if you will make another willow falls book in the future. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. My friend Kendra says you should call it 14 girls. My friend and me thought it would be cool if it was about a girl with 13 sisters! I don’t know how we come up with this stuff! Hope you think that’s a good idea πŸ˜‰
      I LOVE writing soon I think I might post a memoir I’m writing. Hope you respone! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

  2. Maddy on May 17, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    yay! can’t wait to read Pi In The Sky! Or The Canymakers Movie! OR THE LAST PRESENT!!!!! I Pre ordered it from chapters on Sunday! yay! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I agree with Brailey about updating on the tiny stuff too! My friend loves the Willow Falls series too and now she’s borrowing my copy of 13 Gifts because it’s not at out school library πŸ™‚

  4. Sarah K on May 18, 2013 at 12:46 am

    That’s so nice of you! I’ll check out the preview!

  5. Marita on May 18, 2013 at 7:57 am

    How do you get it to work? I can’t read it. I can’t even find it at the kindle store! (Frustrated yowl)

  6. Marita on May 18, 2013 at 8:01 am

    Me: (Crying with frustration) Why won’t it work??????

    • cam on May 18, 2013 at 4:59 pm

      I just started to type in “wendy mass” and it came up. Do not type in anything like ” Pi in the sky.” Also I got it yesterday. I am finishing it today. I suggest to everyone. GET THIS THING!

      • Marita on May 19, 2013 at 5:39 am


        • cam on May 19, 2013 at 3:37 pm

          Tell me if you find it!

          • Marita on May 23, 2013 at 4:27 am

            I still can’t get it! Whenever I type in the name it says there are no matches, and when I type in Wendy Mass it doesn’t come up. Arrrgghhh! I think I might just wait till the book comes out.

          • cam on May 23, 2013 at 6:59 pm

            I am SO SORRY! I read it and it is SO good, but when you read it they leave you hanging. I am going CRAZY not knowing what is going to happen next!

  7. Bella on May 18, 2013 at 8:12 am

    That’s so cool! I can’t wait to read the first seven chapters! I love all of your books!
    I’m really excited for The Last Present, too! I absolutely love the Willow Falls series and hope 11 birthdays can be made into a movie πŸ™‚
    June 11th will be a double epic day because it’s not only Pi in the Sky release date, but it’s also my fifth grade graduation!


    • Anna on May 20, 2013 at 8:42 pm

      This is entirely off topic, but I’m also graduating from 5th grade! But on June 12th. :3

  8. Lizzy Schaefbauer on May 18, 2013 at 11:55 am

    Im going to get pi in the sky the very second it comes out. Im getting the preview right now hope it works. Im 10

  9. gha-yeon on May 18, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    How do you even write the books!? They’re too good to be true!

    • Kirsten on June 7, 2013 at 5:15 pm

      I know, right?!?!

  10. jodi on May 19, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    is Pi a standalone book?

    • Wendy Mass on May 21, 2013 at 9:20 am

      As of now. :o)

  11. Anna on May 20, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    AGHHH This is soo awesome! πŸ˜€ Can”t wait to see the movie and the book! The Candymakers is so awesome and I keep rereading it over and over again.

    • Daphne on July 9, 2013 at 10:58 pm

      Same here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Emily Ma on May 21, 2013 at 8:59 am

    I read it and I love it sooooo much. I wish my parents would let me sleep outside the bookstore to buy this book the minute it comes out. πŸ™‚

  13. Fumi on May 21, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    When is the last book in the Willow Falls series coming out? I’m so excited for it and Im ordering it on my kindle the second it comes out! Literally! The cliffhanger on 13 Gifts just killed me. And sorry I didn’t understand, is the Last Present the title for the last book? Please answer it would mean so much!

    • Maddy on May 21, 2013 at 3:01 pm

      The Last Present is the name of the book, and it`s coming out in October. I pre-ordered it from Chapters Indigo though.The cliff hanger killed me too!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • Bella on May 21, 2013 at 6:49 pm

        I know, right?! After I finished 13 Gifts, I went online, searched for the Willow Falls series, and then I see that The Last Present is coming out in October! I’m like, ‘OMG! CAN I WAIT THAT LONG?!’
        Right now I’m reading The Candymakers, and I absolutely LOVE it!
        Sooooooooo excited!


        • Emma on May 26, 2013 at 5:21 pm

          I totally agree! I cant wait to find out about Grace and Tara. I hope the cliff hanger will be answered in The Last Present! I wonder if there will be another cliffhanger in the book that might be answered in a next follow-up series?

  14. Taylor on May 22, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    That was awesome!!!!! πŸ™‚ I have one question for you.. Who inspired you to start writing the most amazing stories ever?

  15. Marita on May 23, 2013 at 4:29 am

    Did anyone else have trouble getting the preview of Pi in the Sky? I STILL can’t find it on my kindle.

    • cam on June 1, 2013 at 6:43 pm

      well, what device do you use?

      • Zoila on June 2, 2013 at 12:33 am

        try going on a computer to barnesandnoble.com and typing in the name wendy mass it works for me and if not type in pi I the sky free preview

        • cam on June 2, 2013 at 5:33 pm

          They might not have it on there since the book is not published yet. That could be for nooks.

    • Marita on June 5, 2013 at 5:06 pm

      Thank-you for replying, both of you! I’ll try Barnes and Nobles, although it might not work because I live in Australia.

      • cam on June 6, 2013 at 7:38 pm

        YOU DO?!

        • Zoila on June 7, 2013 at 12:40 pm


          • cam on June 7, 2013 at 9:45 pm

            I know right!

      • Marita on June 9, 2013 at 6:54 pm

        Why OMG?

        • cam on June 9, 2013 at 8:38 pm

          I just had NO idea, but it does make sense because I have seen you post at times like 4 in the morning. I live in North Carolina in the US.

          • cam on June 9, 2013 at 8:39 pm

            Wait… Ziola? Why were you on at 12:30 am?

          • Zoila on June 12, 2013 at 1:20 pm

            I can’t sleep sometimes because my brother bothers me all night. He usually stays up till 6 in the morning, but I live in Florida so, ya.

          • cam on June 12, 2013 at 11:05 pm

            Oh. That makes sense.

          • Marita on June 13, 2013 at 7:39 am

            Just so you know, I don’t talk like Ray in 13 Gifts. I talk normally. With an Australian accent.

  16. Feryaal on May 24, 2013 at 9:27 pm


  17. MARITZA on May 25, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    I am super excited for the last present!!! I love the willow falls series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wendy Mass you are a genius. πŸ™‚

  18. Kate on May 27, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    I think that you should make more twice upon a time books like Cinderella or Snow White

  19. Erin on May 29, 2013 at 11:05 am

    I’m still gonna have to wait for the original to come out, but hey, at least it’ll be out soon! Must… Put… On… Hold…
    And YOU are the best, for turning out AMAZING books all the time!

  20. lillianna on May 30, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    hey!! i cannot wait for the The Last Present!!!! :):):):):):):):)
    when will it be available in stores???
    I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!!!!


  21. Molly on May 31, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    Hi Wendy! Just telling you that I’m dying for another Willow Falls book. They are soooooo amazing! I am dying to find out what happens with Grace, Leo, and Amanda! I also am interested to see what happens with David and Tara, and Rory and Jake! Thanks! Bye!

  22. Gabi on May 31, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I’m gonna have to wait for it to come out, because I don’t have a kindle!! You are amazing and your books are truly my FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME!! I cannot wait until the Candymakers movie!! Like Brailey said, please update us on everything!! My BFF’s and I cannot wait until Pi in the Sky and the Last Present come out! Thanks for writing FANTASTIC books!!!

  23. Libby on June 1, 2013 at 8:34 am

    I just got done reading The Candymakers! I loved it. I also liked how it told the story in different people’s view. Sometimes it makes you so mad like your a character with the events happening in the story. But, that is just what makes it so good to read. I also read 13 Gifts and 12 Finally. Sorry this was so log it was only supposed to be a couple of words! πŸ™‚

  24. MorningTime4 on June 1, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    I found “The Last Present” cover while browsing online! It’s amazing!

  25. Zoila on June 2, 2013 at 12:57 am

    Dear Wendy,
    I cant wait for the last present to come in October and have to say that for the Willow Falls series has 11 Birthdays, 12 Finally, 13 Gifts, and the Last Present. So as you can see that’s only 4 books so usually there are 5 books in a series so please don’t stop at the Last Present. I also want to tell you how much I love your books. Maybe I’m not the only on but I think that I can always learn a lesson from one of your books. I’ve always found them very interesting and inspiring. I’m a good writer too, at least that’s what my friend says. But I swear I’m going to need glasses soon by the time I finish reading all of your books. I’ve reread so many times that I’m starting to get blurry vision. When I read A Mango-Shaped Space it literally opened up my imagination. Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of life was one of the first chapter books I ever read, and I because of that book I LOVE to read. Sometimes I even stop doing my homework to read instead. πŸ™‚
    = Zoila

    • cam on June 2, 2013 at 5:36 pm

      I agree with EVERY word you typed! After I finished Beauty and the Beast by Wendy, I started to write my own book. I kind of used the way Miss. Mass wrote her books by having the point of view of different characters, adding humor and much more…

      • Zoila on June 7, 2013 at 12:38 pm


      • Azure on June 7, 2013 at 3:13 pm

        I totally agree with you cam. I was like “I have to write this kind of book!” Wendy Mass is amazing!

  26. Sarah on June 4, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Wendy Mass, you are the best author ever! I love all of your books especially 13 Gifts! I can’t wait till the Last Present comes out!

  27. Azure on June 7, 2013 at 3:12 pm


  28. Kirsten on June 7, 2013 at 5:13 pm


  29. Parker on June 8, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Dear Wendy,
    First off, thank you for writing such amazing books. A Mango Shaped Space ACTUALLY changed my life. I’d always noticed that letters and words were colorful, but I didn’t think much about it. A few chapters in and I knew what was going on, for the first time! Your name reminds me of a banana split because “Wendy” is dark yellow and “Mass” is white (like vanilla ice cream), brown (like chocolate sauce) and red (cherry on top!) Needless to say, my word picture is very clear πŸ˜‰ I’m so glad my school librarian recommended that I read your books. I have always been and avid reader, but I must have read The Candymakers more than a dozen times. I’m only a pre-teen, but I know a good book when I see…read one. Thank you, and PLEASE keep writing series.
    (NOTE: I tired to post this before, but the computer I was on was being strange, I’m sorry if this went through twice)

    • Wendy Mass on June 13, 2013 at 11:06 am

      That’s so great about your synesthesia! I’ve only met a few with the “word pictures” aspect of it. Very cool! Thank your school librarian for me. And wow about reading the candymakers so many times!! Have a great summer and thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚

  30. Lavender on June 14, 2013 at 12:30 am

    I’ve started to read the Candymakers, and so far its one of the best books I’ve ever read! You are an amazing author, and I want to read every book you’ve published. What inspires you to write books?

  31. Daphne on July 9, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Dear Wendy, you changed my life. The first time I read the candymakers I was going through a hard time in life. I didn’t have any friends and that book held my world together.
    Intact , I loved it so much that not only did I read it precisely 13 times, but I also pretended like the 4 characters were invisible and only I cold see them, and they were all my best friends! Thank you so much for making my life worth wile, Xoxo- Daphne

    • Wendy Mass on July 11, 2013 at 11:45 am

      Wow Daphne! You are a very special girl, don’t ever forget that! i’m sure there are people around you who recognize your awesomeness and that by now you have all the real life friends that you want. Big hugs to you! xo Wendy

    • Catherin on September 15, 2013 at 3:46 am

      I would have been your friend if I knew you! πŸ™‚

  32. Petunia on July 16, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    when is the last present coming out. can you not end the series and continue it. this is my second favorite series next to ALL of the Percy Jackson books

  33. Summer on August 26, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    yeah wendy how do you write the books, what inspires you the most when you are writing books? Are you some secret super author or somthing? (P.S. just kidding) But really please tell me asap if you can. Thanks For Being The BEST Author EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

  34. anya on March 5, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    I love your books! i just finished reading ’13 gifts’ and its the best book ever!!:D Its me favorite book and your my favorite author!!

  35. Emily Stewart on February 17, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    OMG your books are MY meaning of life. SOOOOOO good. In A Mango-Shaped Space you made me wish I had synesthesia like Mia. I cried so much. I love The Candymakers because of how unusual all the charecters are. I have a really strange idea. What if Angelina and Grace put a spell on all the other charecters in the other books like Logan and Tara and Bree and Jack and Daisy and Lizzy and Jeremy and they come together and become friends in one whole book. I’m just spewing out random ideas. I love all your books and you are my fave author of all time! Do you have any tips for writing? I’d really appreciate it if you did. The Willow Falls series is the best so far. My fave one is 13 Gifts.

    Your biggest fan,
    Emily Stewart

    • Wendy Mass on August 2, 2022 at 1:35 pm

      Hi Emily! I just found a bunch of old comments that didn’t get posted, I’m sorry!! I’m writing to everyone in that batch to say hi and that I hope you’re doing well and that I really appreciate you!! If you see this and reply, I’ll look out for it. xo, Wendy
