    Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls Book #1: Moving Day

    by Meg Cabot

    When nine-year-old Allie Finkle's parents announce that they are moving her and her brothers from their suburban split-level into an ancient Victorian in town, Allie's sure her life is over. She's not at all happy about having to give up her pretty pink wall-to-wall carpeting for creaky floorboards and creepy secret passageways-not to mention leaving her modern, state-of-the-art suburban school for a rundown, old-fashioned school just two blocks from her new house.

    With a room she's half-scared to go into, the burden of being "the new girl," and her old friends all a half-hour car ride away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?

About This Book

When nine-year-old Allie Finkle's parents announce that they are moving her and her brothers from their suburban split-level into an ancient Victorian in town, Allie is sure her life is over. She's not at all happy about having to give up her pretty pink wall-to-wall carpeting for creaky floorboards and creepy secret passageways — not to mention leaving her modern, state-of-the-art suburban school for a rundown, old-fashioned school just two blocks from her new house.

The New York Times #1 bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series makes her first foray into books for midde-grade readers, with this first installment of a new series starring nine-year-old Allie Finkle, who is trying to adjust to a new town, a new school, and a new room.

* "...her trademark frank humor makes for compulsive reading-as always...this is a story that captures the conflicted feelings with which so many seemingly strong nine-year-olds struggle...In the character Allie Finkle, Cabot captures this moment of transition and makes it feel not just real, but also fun, and funny." — Publishers Weekly, starred and boxed review

"Cabot's endearing, funny and clever protagonist will have readers simultaneously chuckling and commiserating as succeeding chapters introduce individual 'rules' for Allie to contemplate and accept. Lessons on friendship and fickleness, sneaky behavior, lying, animal cruelty and theft merge to create a humorous and heartwarming story. Allie's first-person voice is completely believable with just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek wit...readers will eagerly await Allie's next installment in her new home, school and neighborhood." — Kirkus Reviews
