#1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot's first middle-grade series continues!

Allie's excited about her class field trip. Sure, it's to a historic one-room schoolhouse, built back before there was the Internet or even cell phones, and Allie's teacher is encouraging everyone to dress up in old-timey costumes, which some of Allie's friends are actually doing. GAH! But at least she gets to ride on a bus, which she never gets to do, living so close to school that she actually has to walk there every day!

But then Mrs. Hunter announces that every student in Room 209 has been assigned a "buddy" for the dayfrom Allie's old fourth-grade class at Walnut Knolls Elementary School, with whom Pine Heights Elementary is pairing up for the trip. And Allie's buddy just happens to be her ex-best friend, Mary Kay, who betrayed Allie right before she moved! Allie is going to have to spend a whole day sharing an old-timey desk with a big crybaby!

Raves & reviews:

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
