A Year Without Autumnby Liz Kessler
Synopses & Reviews
Anastasia's got a problem:and#160;Her parents have become too embarrassing to be around. At first she blames them--they are the source of embarrassment, after all. But then she decides it's herself, her thirtee-year-old, hormone-ridden self. She has clearly become a seriously disturbed person, and she needs help, psychiatric help. But nobody else seems to think her condition is that serious, especially not her parents who don't think she needs to see a doctor. They think what she's going through is perfectly normal. Undeterred, the resourceful Anastasia takes matters into her own hands, as she secretly undertakes a course of therapy with th emost famous analyst of them all.
Twelve-year-old Anastasia is horrified at her family's decision to move from their city apartment to a house in the suburbs.
Anastasia's tenth year has some good things, like falling in love and really getting to know her grandmother, and some bad things, like finding out about an impending baby brother.
Anastasia's seventh-grade science project becomes almost more than she can handle, but brother Sam, age three, and a bust of Freud nobly aid her.
Welcome to Anastasia's world in the first book of the Anastasia series! To Anastasia, being ten is very confusing. She has an awful teacher who doesnt like her non-rhyming poetry. Washburn Cummings, a very interesting boy, doesn't even know she's alive. And her parents insist that she visit her grandmother, who cant even remember Anastasia's name. On top of that, they're going to have a baby—at their age! To get back at them, she just might have to do something terrible.
In the second book in the Anstasia series, moves to the suburbs!
Anastasia is positive her family's move is the going to ruin her young life. How can she deal with matching furniture, split-level homes, or mothers whose biggest worry is dirty laundry? But her new home offers many surprises, not to mention a cute boy right down the street. Maybe the surburbs won't be so bad afterall.
