I can't remember any more which book features which adventures of Anastasia, but I used to freaking love this character and her family. I first heard of Billie Holliday because of these books (Anastasia's father has never forgiven her for leaving the Billie Holliday records on the radiator). These are kind of modern versions of your Anne of Green Gables kind of character; smart and precocious and heaps of personality, getting into scrapes and whatnot. Girls at those ages need stories about girls who are simply themselves and doing their thing. Every time I call something a 'debacle' (which is kind of frequent) it's in slight homage to these books.
