Her book series, by author Meg Cabot, is sure to have you laughing … and making up rules of your very own!
Book No. 1: Moving Day
When Allie's parents announce the family’s moving, Allie's far from happy to give up her pretty pink wall-to-wall carpeting for creaky floorboards and creepy secret passageways … not to mention leaving her modern, state-of-the-art suburban school for a rundown, old-fashioned school just two blocks from her new house. With a room she's half-scared to go into, the burden of being "the new girl" and her old friends a half-hour car ride away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?
Book No. 2: The New Girl
Allie’s so excited for her first day of school at Pine Heights Elementary, especially when she finds out she’s going to be in the same class as her new friends Erica, Caroline and Sophie. Plus, she loves her new teacher, pretty and stylish Mrs. Hunter, and she’s getting a new kitten! There’s only one problem: one of the girls in Allie’s new class, Rosemary, doesn’t like her. In fact, Rosemary says she’s going to beat Allie up after school! Everyone has an opinion on how Allie should handle the situation. How can Allie tell who’s right?
Book No. 3: Best Friends and Drama Queens
Allie’s excited when a girl from Canada joins her class at Pine Heights Elementary. Now Allie won't be the new girl anymore! But her excitement turns to dismay when the new girl, Cheyenne, starts telling everyone in class what to do! Soon Cheyenne has everyone, including Allie's best friends, believing that if they don't do what she says, they'll be what Cheyenne accuses them of being: babies!
Book No. 4: Stage Fright
Mrs. Hunter's fourth grade class is putting on a play! But Allie's theatrical hopes are crushed when she doesn't get cast as the princess – instead, she’s got the part of the evil queen. But as opening night approaches, Allie learns it's not the size of the part, it's the size of the heart that really matters.
