Anastasia, Ask Your Analyst 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

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.

Anastasia acquires a couple of gerbils for her science project which soon turn into several more gerbils. About this same time, she realizes she is entering Stage One of adolescence: in which one's parents become horribly embarrassing. She purchases a bust of Freud at a garage sale, and he helps her through this awkward time.Amazingly realistic as well as enormously funny, Anastasia continues to be an entertaining read, even for an adult.

I loved this when I was little, despite the fact that I didn't know what an analyst was. It still worked for me though.

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.
