The New Girl

by Meg Cabot

Bestselling author Cabot delivers the second book in her hilarious new series starring Allie Finkle, the new girl at Pine Heights Elementary.

When you are starting at a brand-new school, you have to wear something good.

Allie Finkle is starting her first day of school at Pine Heights Elementary! Plus, shes getting a new kitten, the first pick of show cat Lady Serena Archibalds litter!

But being the New Girl is turning out to be scary, too, especially since one of the girls in Allies new class, Rosemary, doesnt like her. In fact, Rosemary says shes going to beat Allie up after school. Everyone around Allie tells her their rules about dealing with bullies, but Allie soon comes up with her own rule.
