A long, boring summer--that's what Anastasia has to look forward to when her best friend goes off to camp. She's thrilled when old Mrs. Bellingham answers her ad for a job as a Lady's Companion. Anastasia is sure her troubles are over--she'll be busy and earn money!


But she doesn't expect to have to polish silver and serve at Mrs. Bellingham's granddaughter's birthday party as a maid! As if that isn't bad enough, she accidentally drops a piece of silverware down the garbage disposal and must use her earnings to pay for it! Is the summer destined to be a disaster?

About the Author

Whether she's writing comedy, adventure, or poignant, powerful drama--from Attaboy, Sam! and Anastasia Krupnik to Number the Stars and The Giver--Lois Lowry's appeal is as broad as her subject matter and as deep as her desire to affect an eager generation of readers. An author who is "fast becoming the Beverly Cleary for the upper middle grades" (The Horn Book Magazine), Lois Lowry has written more than 20 books for young adults and is a two-time Newbery Medal winner.Lowry was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and attended junior high school in Tokyo, Japan. Her father was a dentist for the U.S. Army and his job entailed a lot of traveling. She still likes to travel.At the age of 17, Lowry attended Brown University and majored in writing. She left school at 19, got married, and had four children before her 25th birthday. After some time, she returned to college and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maine.Lowry didn't start writing professionally until she was in her mid-30s. Now she spends time writing every single day. Before she begins a book, she usually knows the beginning and end of her story. When she's not writing, Lowry enjoys gardening during the spring and summer and knitting during the winter. One of her other hobbies is photography, and her own photos grace the covers of Number the Stars, The Giver, and Gathering Blue. Lois Lowry has four children and two grandchildren. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

this book tells of the trials that anastasia faces when she becomes a "companion" for a local rich woman, to earn some extra money. she assumes that she will just have to keep her company, but is forced to turn into their maid! this is turned especially embarassin when it is revealed that a girl from her school is her grand daughter! a great read.
