If you love kids like: 1. Anatastia Krupnik 2. Ramona Quimby 3. 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.
Annie has: 1. An incredible memory (really, it's almost photographic) that can get her in trouble 2. A desire to overcome her shyness 3. 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.
Annie's Life in Lists introduces a sweet new voice that finds that even amid the chaos of everyday life, it's important to put things in order.

"A sweet, clever, warmhearted book, and so fun to read!" -Natalie Standiford, author of The Only Girl in School
