#1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot's middle grade debut!

Format: 5 CDs, Unabridged

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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brims with vintage Cabot humor and inventiveness.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Offering a new series for preteens, Meg Cabot brings her signature ear for dialogue to a younger group, and she gets fourth grade right.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “The more complex hues of the second half of elementary school, when complicated friendship dynamics begin to outpace the adult-imposed rules of home and school, leave many kids floundering and confused. In the character Allie Finkle, Cabot captures this moment of transition and makes it feel not just real, but also fun, and funny.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[Tara Sands] does well at portraying a youngster who is trying to understand change and formulate new rules. Sands is careful to harvest the emotions and humor that lie below the protagonist’s sarcastic comments.”

    " My daughter, granddaughter and I listened this while driving to our weekend vacation trip. For me, its helpful to see another 9 year in action. Allie Finkle reminds me of my own nine year old and she seem quite entertained by this book. I love the firm belief that if she does this then that will definitely happen. And the rules? hilarious! The same as my daughter's attitude. Not always right, but NEVER in doubt!!! "

    " Allie's family is moving across town. She will have to go to a new school and live in an old Victorian house where she is sure a zombie lives in the attic. Even worse, she won't see her friends as often or be able to take her entire geode collection. Allie starts a collection of rules about the things she learns along the way, like "Don't stick a spatula down your best friend's throat." This is the first book in the series about Allie Finkle. "
