It's bad enough to be humiliated, Anastasia Krupnik realizes. But to be humiliated in front of an audience--and in front of the world's most glamorous gym teacher--and while wearing a royal blue gym suit? That's the pits. Now that she's decided to become a journalist, life's questions ought to be pretyy easy to answer, Anastasia thinks. A journalist, after all, simply responds to the who, what, when, where, and why of every situation. But why are Daphne Bellingham's parents getting a divorce? Is it Daphne's fault? And why--WHY--is Anastasia the most physically uncoordinated person iever to set foot in a gymnasium? Once again Lois Lowry's wonderful and irrepressible Anastasia has the answers.
