I believe the overall message of a girl entering adolescence is interesting. However, there are some remarks that I found unnecessary. Asking a 3 yr old if he is interested in sex, and sexually explicit jokes about how to make a horomone are not needed to pull the message across. I don't believe this age group needs to be bothered by these sideline antics.

The funny, mishapping Anastasia starts off her newest adventure nearly killing her mother. Yes, really. Mrs. Krupnik is deathly afraid of rodents and who should come into her kitchen carrying a box full of 'em but our very own thirteen-year-old heroine. Within the first few chapters Anastasia whines she NEEDS to go to psychologist(again-yes, really), tells her mother she is going through meno***se, gets poor Mrs

This is my favorite Anastasia book so far! It was extremely funny to see Anastasia go through her science experiment and experience other things.

This book is not as good as some of the other Anastasia books I have read. Anastasia seems really immature in parts of the book, more like a 10 or 11-year-old than a 13-year-old. What 13-year-old would talk to their imaginary analyst? I am also tired of the racism in these books. Anastasia is so naive when she is surprised that a Chinese guy is named Stanley. Doesn't she realize that Chinese Americans often have American names? Also, parts of the book were just plain gross! Parts of the book were funny, though, as Anastasia books always are. This one should still be added to your collection. However, if you want a better and funnier one, read Anastasia At This Address.
