Why I liked this title:

Anastasia finds being 10 years old very confusing. She keeps lists in her secret green notebook of "Things I Hate" and "Things I Love" and some things go back and forth from one list to the other, like her parents, her teachers, and a sixth-grade boy named Washburn Cummings. When Anasatasia finds out her parents are going to have a baby she is not happy! When they offer to let her name the baby she has a chance to get even with them. What's the worst name you can think of for a baby?
