THE GIRL WHO THINKS FOR HERSELF IS ANASTASIA KRUPNIK
She’s a crackle-brained, fizzle-headed, freckle-faced dynamo who usually knows exactly where she’s going.
With her future hurtling towards her, Anastasia must think of a career – an exciting and glamorous one, of course. What better than modelling – all glitz and swank? But first, Anastasia must acquire poise, confidence and … maturity.
“Fast and unfailingly funny”
