Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: Stage Fright by Meg Cabot

When Allie's class puts on a play, every girl in Room 209 wants to try out for the part of the princess - including Allie, Sophie and (ew!) Cheyenne. Not everyone can be the leading lady - but who will try to steal the show, who will get scared, and who will get a tiny bit jealous? Some not-so-friendly competition puts some of Allie Finkle's rules to the test ...There are no small parts. Only small actors. May the best man - or woman - win. If you want to get anywhere, you can't play by the 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.
