There's a whole new set of rules to learn when you're the new girl!

When you are starting at a brand-new school, you have to wear something good.


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.

    I like this book. It's about a girl named allie. In this book she's starting her first day at her new school called Pine Heights Elemanatry. But being a new girl isn't always fun, sometimes it could be scary. But it will be especailly scary for allie cause another girl in her class named Rosemary does NOT like her. Rosemary actually tells Allie she will beat her up after school... Read this!

      I absolutely love this book because Allie is new to a school. Rosemary is trying to scare Allie by saying mean comments. Allie has a spelling bee because she made top ten spellers. What will happen will she win?

          I just love how she describes everything that happened to her on her first day as the new girl. I really did. Like really. Really really liked it.
