Help! Anastasia Krupnik’s mother must organize her chaotic life. So Anastasia, who is a very organized person, and her father invent the solution to Mrs. Krupnik’s problem: the Krupnik Family Nonsexist Housekeeping Schedule.
But when Mrs. Krupnik goes to California on a ten-day business trip, Anastasia finds that the problem isn’t solved at all. It’s hard to stick to a schedule that doesn’t leave room for her little brother, Sam, who’s come down with the chicken pox, and her father’s former girlfriend, who’s invited herself to dinner. How is Anastasia supposed to cope with these interruptions when she’s planning her first dream-date dinner for Steve Harvey?
It’s a cinch. As long as she sticks to the Krupnik Romantic Dinner Week Schedule, what could possibly go wrong?
