Lois Lowry's Anastasia Krupnik series

Here are your silly little problems; when you look at them in ten years' time may they bring a smile to your face the way Anastasia's problems do now. Here is a reminder of how delightful it is to be weird and young, to realize little by little how tiny your corner of the world is and to learn about it a bit at a time. Here is confirmation you don't need, that lists are important and that collecting words is a thing. 

(This is also why you might not pass your kinetics exam. Honestly, would you rather solve problems about fuel pipes or immerse yourself in Lois Lowry's gift for making small words and small worlds meaningful?)
