Allie Finkle's Rules For Girls: Moving Day by Meg Cabot

Allie Finkle is ten years old. She’s got two annoying little brothers, a best friend who cries a lot – and a dog called Marvin. She’s also got a bunch of rules – most of them, like Don’t get a pet that poops in your hand – only having been discovered through bitter experience. In this funny, fast-moving series, Allie makes (and breaks) rules all over the place as she deals with everything that life can throw at her. In Moving Day Allie’s parents announce that the family’s moving – to a creepy old house in town. With a room she’s half scared to go into, the burden of being ‘the new girl’, and her old friends a car ride away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?

Meg Cabot married financial writer and poet Benjamin D. Egnatz on April 1, 1993. Their wedding date (April Fool’s Day) was a deliberate play on her husband's belief that only fools get married in the first place. The wedding was actually an elopement in Italy. Her novel Every Boy's Got One is loosely based on her own elopement.

Before she published her first book, Meg worked as an assistant dorm manager at New York University. After living in Indiana, California, New York, and France, she now currently resides in Key West, Florida. with her husband and one-eyed cat, Henrietta.

In May 2006, the Harvard Crimson released reports that 19-year-old author Kaavya Viswanathan borrowed passages from Cabot's Princess Diaries series, and other books, to place in her novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. Viswanathan's novels were subsequently pulled from the shelves.

Cabot has also written many books for teens, including The Princess Diaries series, which has won many awards, and her recently completed series, The Mediator.
