#1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot's first middle-grade series continues!

Allie Finkle's starting her first day of school at Pine Heights Elementary! Plus, she's getting a new kitten, the first pick of show cat Lady Serena Archibald's litter!

But being the New Girl is turning out to be scary, too, especially since one of the girls in Allie's new class - Rosemary - doesn't like her. In fact, Rosemary says she's going to beat Allie up after school.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on how Allie should handle the situation. How can Allie tell who's right? Who knew it was going to be so hard being the New Girl?

Meg Cabot is the author of the New York Times bestselling series The Princess Diaries, which was made into two wildly popular Disney films of the same name. Other books include All-American Girl, Ready or Not, Teen Idol, Avalon High, How to Be Popular, Pants on Fire, and the Airhead, Allie Finkle, Mediator, and 1-800-Where-R-You series...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely recommended If you’ve ever moved, you know what it’s like to start a new school. Nerve-wracking. Just plain ol’ scary. Well, Allie knows and she’s determined to make a good impression on the first day. Even if it means wearing a skirt over jeans (‘cause she can’t find her leggings). At any rate, at least she isn’t going to school wearing a pirate costume (like her brother…). Anyway, Allie has it better than some other New Kids. She’s already friends with Erica, Sophie and Caroline. Unfortunately, when she starts school, she realizes that not everyone seems to like her. In fact, one person really dislikes her- so much so that she says she’s going to beat Allie up… I haven’t read the first book of the series so I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect when I started it. I wasn’t sure if I would like it-after all, the character was so much younger than me. But I ended up really enjoying it. As with Meg Cabot’s other books-adult and teen- this book was a lot of fun. The book was simply charming and Meg Cabot easily captured the voice of a fourth-grader. If you have a younger sibling or if you’re parent looking for a good book for your daughter, then I’d definitely recommend this book.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Allie Finkle series:"Brims with vintage Cabot humor and inventiveness." -The New York Times Book Review*"In Cabot's first foray into novels for kids who are still in single digits, her trademark frank humor makes for compulsive reading . . . Allie is funny, believable, and plucky." -Publishers Weekly, starred review"Your new rule? This book must be read . . . now!" -Discovery Girls"Allie will appeal to children who enjoyed reading about Ramona, Amber Brown, Junie B., and the other feisty girls found in beginning chapter books. This novel proves that the master of young adult popular fare is able to adapt her breezy style for a younger audience." -School Library Journal
