Description

Anybody can run a household. All you need is a schedule. At least, that's what Anastasia thinks. So she and her dad decide to organize Anastasia's frazzled mother and help her run the household smoothly. But when Mom has to go away for a consulting job, Anastasia gets to test out her theory. The household quickly begins to crumble as Anastasia has to face Sam's chicken pox, an unexpected visit from her father's old girlfriend, and her first date ever. How is she supposed to take care of Sam and make a romantic gourmet meal? Anastasia has new-found respect for her mom and the important job she does.

Praise For Anastasia on Her Own (An Anastasia Krupnik story)

"As always with the Anastasia stories, pacing and character are excellent, and humor varies from laugh-out-loud farce to wry insights into a loving family." Publishers Weekly
