The Lovereading comment:
Allie is a brilliant heroine who 7+ year old girls will love and really look up to. She’s full of adventure, quite precocious and at times her army of family and friends despair of her. At times it’s laugh-out-loud funny and it’s sure to get even the most reticent reader on to the reading ladder.
SynopsisAllie Finkle's Rules For Girls: The New Girl by Meg Cabot
Everything is new for Allie Finkle. A new house, a new school, new friends - when all she wanted was a new kitten. Now Allie's finding that it's hard being the New Girl, especially when the class bully hates you from the first day! What Allie needs are some new rules to help her out! Like ...when you are starting your first day; ever at a brand new school, you have to wear something good; so people will think you're nice; if you say it enough times in your head it will come true (sometimes); and a lady never raises her fist to another.
