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.
Twelve-year-old Anastasia has a series of disastrous experiences when she is hired to be a maid.
In the third book of the Anastasia series, Anstasia becomes an entrepeneur.
When Anastasia's best friend goes off to camp for the summer, Anastasia decides she needs to do something too. So she starts her own business. Her first job is as a Lady's Companion. But what seems like an easy summer job turns into one problem after another. First off, turns out Lady's Companion is actually just a fancy way of saying maid. And then she accidently throws a silver bockle into the garbage disposal. How will she ever manage to pay for that? And what is a bockle, anyway?
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.
