I think Allie Finkle has the right idea. Rules are great — they remind us to look both ways before crossing streets, to not eat too much candy before dinner, and to not blame the dog if we didn't do our homework.
I just finished Moving Day, Book 1 in the Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls series, and I decided I needed to ask Allie's former best friend, Mary Kay, some questions. See, Mary Kay ends up betraying Allie in a pretty specific way, but I think overall, she probably means well. She was just hurt and probably a little afraid.
So here's what I would ask Mary Kay if I had the chance:
- Why do you cry so much?
- Why would you want to be friends with someone like Brittany Hauser?
- Do you miss Allie now that she's moved away?
Who else out there likes Allie Finkle? Tell me what you'd want to ask Mary Kay in the comments!
