Do you love Anastasia Krupnik, Ramona Quimby, and the Penderwicks? Then you will love Annie! For Annie, lists are how she keeps her whole life in order. And there is a lot to keep track of!
Annie’s a shy fifth grader with an incredible memory and a love of making lists. It helps her keep track of things when they can seem a little out of control, like her family, her friends, and her life in a new place.
1. An incredible memory (really, it’s almost photographic) that can get her in trouble.
2. A brother who is mad at her because he thinks she is the reason they had to move to Clover Gap, population 8,432.
4. A best friend who she is (almost) certain will always be her best friend.
5. New classmates, some of whom are nicer than others.
6. A rocky start finding her place in her new home.
From the author of The 47 People You’ll Meet in Middle School, Annie’s Life in Lists finds that even amid the chaos of everyday life, it’s important to put things in order.
“Perfect for anyone who’s ever worried about starting a new school, saying the wrong thing, dying of embarrassment, or losing a best friend. I loved getting to know Annie through her lists!” –Kelly Jones, author of Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer
