Anastasia Again! (Anastasia Krupnik #2)
Twelve-year-old Anastasia Krupnik is convinced that her family's move to the suburbs will be the beginning of the end. How can she possibly accept split-level houses with matching furniture, or mothers whose biggest worry is ring around collar? But her new home brings many surprises, not to mention a cute boy who lives down the street. Is it possible that surburbia has mor...more
Yang membuat aku suka pada Anastasia adalah karena dia punya orang tua yang keren banget >,< bahkan ayahnya punya rak buku yang menjulang dari lantai sampai langit2 dan menutupi seluruh dinding. Huwaaaaa >,<
Sebenarnya buku ini agak-agak mirip dengan Al...more
When she moves to her new house, she meets a really crabby elderly woman next door neighbor that looks like a witch. As she gets to know her better she begins to feel sorry for the old wom...more
I like that the dad lets Anastasia sip the foam off the top of his beer, which makes her realize that beer is no big deal, so she doesn't feel the need to sneak it in her room.
I like that her parent's have already told her factually about sex, so she doesn't have to sneak books into the house in order to learn the facts of life.
I like that the members of the family sometimes get mad at one another, the parents fight, at times they are all a little...more
Di serial sebelumnya (Anastasia Krupnik: Rahasia si Gadis Kecil), Anastasia dikabarkan sang ortu akan mendapat adik. Dan di buku ke-2 ini, Sam, sang adik, sudah lahir, sudah berusia 2 1/2 tahun, yang tumbuh cepat secara verbal. Menurut Anastasia, itu aneh. Sebab, s...more
In the second book, Anastasia is 12 years old. Her and her family, including now 2 1/2 year old Sam, are moving to the suburbs. Anastasia hates the idea of the suburbs; women with pink curlers, TV dinners, and plastic bowls of fruit everywhere.
Not surprisingly, she realizes before too long that a lot of her assumptions were wrong. She even makes a few friends before school starts, not even minding that most of them are senior citizens from the center down the street.
The Krupniks are moving to the suburbs, so she's getting used to a new place, finding new friends, missing old friends. There's humor, intelligence, and just a hint of tween drama.
I have always been incredibly jealous of Anastasia's life, ever since I was her age. Her parents treat her like a person and respect her input, her father teaches at Harvard, she lives in the Boston area, and now she has a house with a tower bedroom! (I do realize that Anastasia is fictional.)
Lowry has created a very realistic narrator that young people will relat...more
She soon began to like when she saw the boy that lived down the street and when she decided that it was her duty to help the crank...more
Anastasia has grown up a bit since the last book, and she's not quite as self-absorbed as the last time we sa...more
This is one of my favorite books about Anastasia, in which she deals with her issues surrounding having to move to the suburbs. Her assumptions about the move are dashed when she DOES manage to fall in love with the house, meet the neighb...more
There's a funny bit where Anastasia tells her mother she's going to have to marry Robert Giannini that I know I didn't "get" when I was a kid.
This one now joins Anastasia On Her Own and Anastasia's Chosen Career as my favorites... and makes me want t...more
"I’ve always felt that I was fortunate to have been born the middle child of three. My older sister, Helen, was very much like our mother: gentle, family-oriented, eager to please. Little brother Jon was the only boy and had interests that he shared with Dad; together they were always working on electric trains and erector sets; and later, when Jon was older, they always...more
