About Anastasia Krupnik by Lois Lowry

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 doesn t 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 can t 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. "
