I’m just a 9-year-old girl who’s just trying to make sense out of the 4th grade, so I jot down rules to help myself remember how to be a good sister, student, and friend – and also not to eat anything red. That’s a rule!
Want to know more of my rules? Then read these books, all about moi!
Those are the words of Allie Finkle, the star of a fantastic series of books by Meg Cabot. With currently five stories in the series, each book focuses on Allie Finkle’s making (and breaking) of rules all over the place as she deals with everything that life can throw at her, whether it’s moving house or handling the meanest girl in class!
Each week we will be telling you about one of the stories in this series so you too can learn how to make and break rules from the very best!
Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Moving Day
Allie Finkle is ten years old. She’s got two annoying little brothers 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’, having been discovered through bitter experience!
In Moving Day Allie absolutely does not want to move house. Moving means leaving behind her pretty pink room and her best friend, Mary Kay. The new house is cold, old, dark and creepy, and there is almost definitely a zombie hand living in the attic!
Listening to your parents is a golden rule, but how can Allie convince her family that moving is a very bad idea?
