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

Allie Finkle's starting her first day of school at Pine Heights Elementary! Plus, she's getting a new kitten, the first pick of show cat Lady Serena Archibald's litter!

But being the New Girl is turning out to be scary, too, especially since 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 seems to have an opinion on how Allie should handle the situation. How can Allie tell who's right? Who knew it was going to be so hard being the New Girl?

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
