Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls Book 4: Stage Fright
Meg Cabot's youngest star is headed for the stage. . .at her school. For parent's night. But still, it's a starring role! The fourth grade puts on a play written by Mrs. Hunter! Allie is sure she will walk away with the most coveted role--that of the princess, naturally-but one of her friends gets the part! What Allie doesn't realize is that the part she does get--that of the evil queen--is actually a better (and bigger) role. But Allie isn't content with just starring in the play. She goes full-on method and borrows some false eyelashes to wear for the play, which (what else is new?) causes a great deal of excited controversy. Allie learns it's not the size of the part, it's the size of the heart that matters.

Our customer reviews
Allie Finkle's fourth grade class is putting on a play and Allie really, really wants the part of the main character, Princess Penelope. The only problem is that so does almost every other girl in her class, including one of her best friends, Sophie, and snobby Cheyenne. Allie's not worried, though. With help from her ex-theater major Uncle Jay and her mom's new "Celebrity" job as a movie critic on a local cable show, she's sure to get the part. But if she does get the part, will Sophie still be her best friend? How will she ever practice her lines with her two little brothers playing tackle football in the hallway all the time? Most importantly, can Allie figure all this out without breaking any of her rules? STAGE FRIGHT, like all Meg Cabot's books, was very funny and a lot of fun. Young girls will relate to Allie's friendship (and enemy) troubles and excitement. Allie and everyone in her world are sweet, and Allie always finds a way to make any situation fun.show moreby TeensReadToo
