About the Book

*"The well-turned phrase amuses and the unexpected turn of events surprises."  —Booklist, starred review

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.
