Miranda Cosgrove Read From Allie Finkle!

Posted by at 7:06 pm in Celebrities, Reads | Permalink

Yesterday I learned that I’m very similar to Miranda Cosgrove, the star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly. No, I don’t act on a hit TV show. No, I haven’t been in movies alongside big names like Jack Black. No, I don’t lead a life of glitz and glamor. And saddest of all, no, I’m not on a first-name basis with Drake and Josh . . . Okay, fine, I’m not similar to Miranda Cosgrove at all. But I really did discover one thing that we have in common: we both love Meg Cabot’s series Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls!

How do I know? Because Miranda visited the Scholastic Store in SoHo, NYC, to do a reading — and out of all the books in the world that she could read from, she picked Moving Day, the first installment in the Allie Finkle series!

Miranda chose two of her favorite chapters to read: Chapter 4 (“Brothers — and Parents — Can Be Very Insensitive”) and Chapter 11 (“When You Finally Figure Out What the Right Thing to Do Is, You Have to Do It, Even If You Don’t Want To”). Check out this video of Miranda reading Chapter 4.

After the reading, Miranda stuck around to meet give out autographed photos. At one point, Miranda even signed a little girl’s backpack — I bet I know what that particular fan is bringing in for her next show-and-tell at school!

When Carly H. and I left, there was still a HUGE line of parents and kids waiting to meet Miranda. I hope they didn’t keep Miranda at the store for too long — because she’s got to jet to Japan this weekend! Or, at least, her character on iCarly does. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, then you obviously don’t watch as much TV as I do! To get you caught up, here’s the trailer for iGo to Japan.

Are you planning to watch? Why not grab a copy of Allie Finkle to read while you’re waiting? Because we can’t all be teen sensations like Miranda Cosgrove, but at least we can read like she does . . .

    I feel the same way Kristen nobody ever comes where I live either. I mean Miley came and the Cheetah girls. They really don’t have anybody that I really really like. Don’t get me wrong I love Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, and the Cheetah Girls.
