The New Girl is the second in Meg Cabot's hilarious series for younger readers, Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls.

Allie Finkle likes rules – they help to keep her life in order, especially when she's just moved house and things begin to spiral out of your control! Starting a new school, making new friends and saving the life of an abandoned Kitten is hard enough without Rosemary, the Meanest girl in the class, deciding to pick on you. But Allie knows how to fight back (you have to be tough when you have two little brothers, right?) and the most important rule of all is that 'You can't let a bully know she's bothering you, or otherwise the bully wins.'
