Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Allie looks forward to starting school again after winter vacation, but the arrival of a new girl, Cheyenne, changes everything. Within days, Cheyenne gathers a clique, starts a chase-and-kiss game at recess, and bullies most of her classmates into pairing off and “going with” each other, even though they’re not sure exactly what that means. Using Allie’s fresh voice and believable fourth-grade perspective, Cabot gets across her “let children be children” message in a way that will make sense to other kids. The third Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls book sympathetically portrays the broad emotional range of fourth-graders. Grades 3-5. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

Praise for the Allie Finkle series:

"Brims with vintage Cabot humor and inventiveness." —The New York Times Book Review

*"In Cabot's first foray into novels for kids who are still in single digits, her trademark frank humor makes for compulsive reading . . . Allie is funny, believable, and plucky." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Your new rule? This book must be read . . . now!" —Discovery Girls

"Allie will appeal to children who enjoyed reading about Ramona, Amber Brown, Junie B., and the other feisty girls found in beginning chapter books. This novel proves that the master of young adult popular fare is able to adapt her breezy style for a younger audience." —School Library Journal

I just picked this book up because I thought my 7 year old daughter would like it and boy was I right! She couldn't put it down and really enjoyed it. We didn't realize until she was finished that it is #3 in the Rules for Girls series. She can't wait to read the first 2 books. I do need to note that while my daughter is in the 2nd grade, her reading level is at a 4th grade level, so this may be a little long for a 7 year old (200 pages).

Allie thought her life was going pretty good during holiday vacation. Her family got a new game system and she was anxious to share it with her friends when they came home from vacation.

Right before school starts up, one of her friends tells her that their teacher said they are going to have a new student when they come back. At first, Allie isn't too excited about this. But once she finds out that the new student is a girl and from Canada, the excitement sets in.

Though on her first day back, Allie is asked to sit in the back of the classroom with all the annoying, gross boys so the new girl, Cheyenne, can sit up front with the girls and feel welcome in her new class . Not long after Cheyenne starts going to Allie's school, she and her friends realize that she isn't that great.

Mostly, she's just bossy and rude. She thinks that all the girls in the fourth grade should be "going" with boys because that is the mature thing to do. Pretty soon, she ends up getting most all of the girls to even go with all the boys, but not Allie. Allie is determined to stand her ground and to not be bullied by this bully.

This was a really cute third book in the ALLIE FINKLE'S RULES FOR GIRLS series. Meg Cabot has the perfect voice of a girl in the fourth grade. I can just picture Allie and her friends. I thought some parts of this book were a little out there, but even so it was a cute read. I'm sure young girls (and even boys) around the world will enjoy this book, and the rest of the series.

I love all the little rules she makes up. My favorite rule in this book was: "Boys can seriously be so stupid sometimes. Also deeply thoughtless." So true!

I loved this book because it is so cool and it has lessons in it. It has bullying . And Allie Finkle has a book of rules for friendship and stuff like that. I loved this book and I'm hoping to read the whole series.

Looks like a really great book. My granddaughter has not read the book yet, but I flipped through it and it looks like an interesting book for an 8 year old girl. My granddaughter and her friends fit the category of Best Friends and Drama Queens. That is what caught my attention to the book. Will purchase more in this series of books.
