Review: Anastasia at Your Service by Lois Lowry
Review: This had all the makings of your average Anastasia book - meaning adventure, snark, vocabulary, imagination, schemes, and friendships. But then the issue with Sam, Anastasia's brother, and the book got much more serious. The relationship we have with our siblings, particularly when we are young, is complicated. Anastasia learns that, learns you can love someone and be annoyed by them at the same time. And that getting mad at a siblings doesn't mean you don't love them. I also enjoyed seeing Anastasia navigate her first job. Again, I highly recommend all of the Anastasia books, but this one in particular is a good story for kids.
