Allie returns with new rules in the sixth book of the acclaimed series!

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's 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 day--from Allie's old 4th 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!

      This is a great book for elementary students and its about a girl who's moved to a new place having hard making friends but making enemies as well. I've experienced her perspective, which is why I love this book and is whole series.

          I love this book, it is the newest in the series by Meg Cabot. In this bnook, Allie goes on a field trip to honeypot prairie Allie is sort of exited, until she learns that she has to share the field trip with her OLD class, and even worse, she gets paired up with her ex-best-friend Mary Kay. I recommend this book.
