Allie Finkle's Rules For Girls: Moving Day by Meg Cabot

Allie Finkle is ten years old. She’s got two annoying little brothers, a best friend who cries a lot – and a dog called Marvin. She’s also got a bunch of rules – most of them, like Don’t get a pet that poops in your hand – only having been discovered through bitter experience. In this funny, fast-moving series, Allie makes (and breaks) rules all over the place as she deals with everything that life can throw at her. In Moving Day Allie’s parents announce that the family’s moving – to a creepy old house in town. With a room she’s half scared to go into, the burden of being ‘the new girl’, and her old friends a car ride away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?

Meg Cabot married financial writer and poet Benjamin D. Egnatz on April 1, 1993.

In May 2006, the Harvard Crimson released reports that 19-year-old author Kaavya Viswanathan borrowed passages from Cabot's Princess Diaries series, and other books, to place in her novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. Viswanathan's novels were subsequently pulled from the shelves.
