Short snippet from Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Moving Day:
“But I couldn’t let my parents sell our house and move into the new one. I just couldn’t.
Because you can’t let your family move into a haunted house.
That’s not even a rule.
It’s a fact.”
A Brand New House
Allie Finkle is a young nine-year old girl She has two little brothers, a funny uncle, and a best friend. She is happy with her life just the way it is. One day her parents spring the news that Guess what? We’re moving! Allie is not excited. Especially when her new neighbor tells her that there is something in the attic that chased away the previous owners of the house. Scared of the thing in the attic, she does all she can to prevent her family from moving. Even bonuses like living close enough to walk to Dairy Queen, a new non-crying best friend, and possibly getting a kitten isn’t enough to change her mind. Her family cannot move. Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Moving Day is about how Allie copes with moving and other challenges a girl her age goes through.
What’s The Message?
I think that the message for this book is that life can be hard and full of challenges but if you look for the bright side and don’t whine and complain you will enjoy it. In the end of the book, her uncle Jay tells Allie that even though she doesn’t want to move, try pretending that she is happy. Allie does it because she trusts her uncle. And in the end, she realizes that she is okay moving. And okay, the kitten is an added bonus.

five out of fiverules
It’s funny, it’s realistic, and it reminds you of little kids’ imagination and how it can easily get out of hand. Really good for girls ages eight and up. If you know someone within that age group, don’t hesitate to recommend this book.
