An exhilarating, refreshing book. The writer clearly has an acute awareness of the machinations of 12-year-old girls, and deals with the problems which they experience as the grow, with subtlety and understanding. Anastasia, the heroine, works as a maid for a rich American lady. She meets the latter's daughter and the two girls scheme a plan to make the woman realise that she should treat them with more respect. The outcome is not planned, but a modicum of success is achieved. This precis does little justice to the writer's style, wit or pointed observations. Many of the scenes portrayed are cameos of real life experience that many of us will easily recognise. Recommended for all 'Anastasias'--- and their parents and teachers!
