“Meg Cabot's Allie Finkle books are great, funny stories built around important topics like bullying and peer pressure in the middle grades. This newest book shows how our plucky Allie deals with a prima donna classmate who's trying to make everyone follow her bad example.”
— Mark David Bradshaw, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS

Allie Finkle is excited when a new girl, who comes all the way from Canada, joins her class at Pine Heights Elementary. Now Allie won’t be the new girl anymore!

But her excitement turns to dismay when the new girl, Cheyenne, starts telling everyone in the fourth grade what to do! Soon Cheyenne has everyone, including Allie’s best friends, Caroline, Sophie, and Erica, believing that if they don’t do what she says, they’ll be what Cheyenne accuses them of being - babies!

But Allie isn’t sure she’s ready to be all grown-up yet. Not if it means chasing boys at recess, not playing her favorite games anymore, and especially...not being herself!
