You dressed Allie up for the holidays on the Allie Finkle site. But now winter break is over, and Allie is going back to school just like the rest of us (or, well, work in my case). In Best Friends and Drama Queens (the third book in Meg Cabot's series, Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls) Allie's friend, Caroline, comes back from vacation with exciting news: there's going to be a new student in Allie's class!
Now, much to Allie's relief, she won't be the new girl anymore. But it turns out that Allie's excitement is premature. The new girl, Cheyenne (who's come all the way from Canada), starts bossing around everyone in the fourth grade. Soon Cheyenne has everyone, including Allies best friends, Caroline, Sophie, and Erica, believing that if they don't do what she says, they'll be exactly what Cheyenne accuses them of being — babies!
The book doesn't hit stores until next month. But as a special treat to ease your back-to-school blues, you can read the first chapter right here on The Splot:
I can't wait to read the rest of the book!
