Anastasia, the freckle-faced dynamo, is ready for romance!
When Anastasia reads an ad about a Lonely Heart who’s ‘‘single, 28 with boyish charm and inherited wealth”, how can she resist? Some would say that being only 13 might be a drawback, but Anastasia knows better!

"SWM, 28, boyish charm, inherited wealth, looking for tall young woman, non-smoker, to share Caribbean vacations, reruns of Casablanca, and romance."To 13-year-old Anastasia Krupnik, this Single White Male from the magazine personals section sounds perfect. And really, she's not lying when she writes to say she is tall, young, hates smoking, has seen Casablanca so many times she can recite some of it, is quite sure she would like Caribbean vacations and is definitely ready for romance. And later, when she writes to say she owns a sloop and that she races occasionally, well, that's not exactly a lie either. Tension and hilarity build as Anastasia digs herself deeper into this embroilment. When SWM writes to say he would like to meet her, it looks like the jig is finally up. How will our outspoken, fast-thinking, SWF get herself out of this mess? Anastasia, subject of many award-winning books by Lois Lowry, is a terrific modern role model for girls. Headstrong, independent, warm, and open, she manages to pull herself out of every one of the many predicaments she gets into. As she struggles with the changing feelings of adolescence, she maintains a good, yet realistic, relationship with her parents and young brother. (Ages 9 to 12). -- Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com About the Author:
Lois Lowry was born in 1937 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the daughter of an army officer. She went to school in Japan, university in the US and currently lives in Boston. While working as a freelance journalist in the 1970’s, Lois Lowry published a short story which was based on her own childhood and a children’s book editor contacted her to suggest she write for children. She followed this advice and has been writing for children, very successfully, for years!
