I liked this book, it was very funny and interesting, but one thing. Anastasia is too naive and Sam is too smart! I'm an eleven year old and I know. In this book, Anastasia acts exactly the same as she did when she was ten in her first book. She also seems to still have the same intelligence, too. I am much smarter than her, and so is the dumbest kid in my class. Also, Sam is too smart! He is two or three in that book, and he has a complete vocabulary. Though there are many three year olds who can talk just as well, if Anastasia is very dumb and Sam is very smart, it just doesn't work out. But aside from that, this is a great book!
I'm insipered by Lois Lowry because I'm about to become a writer too. I love the way she makes Anastasia's personatlity. Its A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!! Especially for reading OUT LOUD. I'm dissapointed because it's the last book in the Anastasia Series and I'm eager to read more about Anastasia!! A must read!!
