An irresistible picture of friendship, school, families and, above all, the overpowering need to belong and so to know the rules is here created by the narrator Allie. Allie is looking forward to the arrival of a new girl in her class but the new girl seems not to know how she should behave. Can Allie and her friends teach her the rules? You bet they can!


Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: Best Friends and Drama Queens by Meg Cabot

Allie is excited when Cheyenne joins her class - now she won't have to be the 'new girl' any more! But Cheyenne wears zip-up boots, likes boys, thinks imaginary games are for 'big babies' and tells everyone what to do. Still, Allie won't be bossed around - it's time to teach the 'new girl' some tough rules.

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.

Cabot has also written many books for teens, including The Princess Diaries series, which has won many awards, and her recently completed series, The Mediator.
