There's a whole new set of rules to learn when you're the new girl!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Elste
It's always difficult and stressful for a young girl to start her first day at elementary school. It is not any different for Allie Finkle in this second book of "The New Girl" series. Allie has her hands full in this tale, not only because she is starting her first day at Pine Heights Elementary School but also because she is getting a new kitten. In addition, Allie runs into problems when one of the girls in her new class, named Rosemary, decides she doesn't like Allie. What's worse is that Rosemary even threatens to beat up Allie after school. This book is a charmer that any child can relate to. The chapter titles alone would draw a child into reading this book, from "Rule #1: 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," through "Rule #4: When Someone Decides She's Going to Beat You Up, the Best Thing to Do is Hide," the reader is drawn into the routine problems of kids this age. A winner. Reviewer: Joan Elste

After having moved with her family to a new neighborhood in a slightly creepy old house, Allie is the "New Girl" at Pine Heights Elementary.

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 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.

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

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

Awww, this was a really cute second book to the ALLIE FINKLE'S RULES FOR GIRLS series. I loved it! I'm happy Ms. Cabot started writing for younger readers. 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 girl!

This book rocks!! I read this book and thought it was a very fast read. I think it is pergect for anybody starting at 3rd grade. Allie has some of the best rules. But some of them are kind of wierd. This book I would recommend it to mostly girls. If you are thinking about getting this book get it. It is NOT a waste of money. I love Allie she is such a nice girl and would make a best friend with anybody. Her friends she makes in this book are better, more miture, noncrybaby, best friends then Mary Kay ever was. They all have an active and wild imagination. Join the world of Allie Finkle at her new school in, Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls Moving Day.

Bought this book for my daughter as a gift. She loved it and has requested all of the other books by this author. It is easy for her to read and holds her attention. As she is not an avid reader, this is very important.
