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. She's not at all happy about having to give up her pretty pink wall-to-wall carpeting for creaky floorboards and creepy secret passageways-not to mention leaving her modern, state-of-the-art suburban school for a rundown, old-fashioned school just two blocks from her new house.
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?
Raves & reviews:
"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
