Allie Finkle #4: Stage Fright Sneak Peek

Posted by at 5:41 pm in Reads | Permalink

Allie4_130 So I just read the very first chapter of Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls, Book 4: Stage Fright by Meg Cabot, and if you're an Allie Finkle fan, you certainly won't be let down. Even reading the first fifteen pages, I already see Allie's cute wit, and I get a sense that deep down inside she wants to be a star! I mean, who wouldn't want to be a celebrity? I'd take being a local celebrity!

I found it interesting that the book starts with a rule (No, I'm not going to give it away!) that basically acknowledges the importance of giving compliments. Allie certainly isn't a stranger to giving herself compliments either. Some people might call it bragging, but I think she's just confident. However, I wonder if this first rule is going to be a running theme throughout the book. Even if someone makes a complete fool out of herself or totally messes up, shouldn't you always make that person feel better anyway?

That's just my guess regarding the theme of the book. However, in order to know for sure what is really going to happen to Allie, I'll have to read Stage Fright in its entirety when it comes out on September 15th.

Oh and since when is Allie into 1980's comic books? The Voltron reference was awesome!

    Allie wants to be a star as much as I do! I’ve been on the news once, acciedntally, along with a whole bunch of stranger kids. There was a news reporter filming trick-or-treaters and I was walking in camera range! We have a video of that at home. I was too little to remember, though, and my name wasn’t said.
