Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: The New Girl

Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: The New Girl by Meg Cabot
Rating: 5 stars

After having moved with her family to a new neighborhood in a slightly creepy old house Allie is the New Girl at her new school, Pine Heights Elementary. But being the New Girl isn't all that easy. Sure she's made some great new friends and she loves her new teacher. She even gets to go home for lunch because her new house is only two blocks away from school. But there is a girl in her class, Rosemary, who isn't so fond of Allie and even threatens to beat her up. Allie keeps getting advice from everyone about what do about the whole Rosemary situation but she has no idea which thing is the right thing to do.

During all of this school drama Allie is worrying about her future kitten, Mewsette. Because the mother of her future kitten gave birth to her litter early so all the little kitties are premature.

Poor Allie, what's a New Girl to do?

Aww this was a really cute second book to the series. I loved it! I'm happy Meg started writing for younger kids. My cousin is going to love this when I give it to her for her birthday next month. Definitely have your little sisters (or even little brothers) check it out. Hopefully they'll like it. Allie is such a fun little girl. =)

It's neat to know Cabot's writing for a younger audience. I haven't been very happy with her older teen stuff, maybe it's good she's trying something new.
