When nine-year-old Allie Finkle’s parents announce that they are moving her and her brothers from their suburban split-level into an ancient Victorian in town, Allie’s sure her life is over. With a room she’s half-scared to go into, the burden of being “the new girl,” and her old friends all a half-hour car ride away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?

Meg Cabot is an amazing writer and this series is just as amazing!
I enjoyed the whole book, but I did have my favorite moments. My top one would be when Allie “accidentally” started a food fight on her last day at her old school. I liked it because, it was pretty unexpected and it made me laugh. Another close one would be when she rescued the turtles from the Lung Chung restaurant. Especially after reading her rule, which was: “When tour setting a turtle free, and people are chasing you, the best thing to do is hide.”
I love how Meg brought each character to life.
Especially the main character, Allie Finkle, who makes the book so much fun to read. She’s also very relatable, and your typical girl-next-door. Her fiery passion for animal rights and liberation brings a smile to my face.
From page one Allie’s personality draws you in, and refuses to release you until the last page is turned. Even when you close the book, it still leaves you craving for more!
