This silly book is about Allie Finkle, who is 9-years-old and in fourth grade. She does not want to move. This is the first book in this tween series, which has six books. Allie keeps a secret book of funny rules. One rule is:Don’t stick a spatula down your best friend’s throat! Another rule is: Never eat anything red! She has two younger brothers that get on her nerves a lot.
She is very upset about having to leave behind her pretty rock collection. Even worse than that, Allie thinks that her new house is going to be haunted because the house is dark, creepy, and old with floors that squeak. Meanwhile, she breaks up with her best friend, Mary Kay. Two of the girls in her class try to get Allie and Mary Kay back together before the move.
Some of the chapters are a little boring, but others are exciting and foolish. There are a lot of things that she is scared of in her new home, like the attic. Allie says many negative things that aren’t true about her house, but eventually her attitude changes because her parents tell her that if she doesn’t complain, she will get a kitten from a beautiful cat who is about to have kittens. I think many kids my age will like this book. It left me wondering about what is going to happen in the next books and made me want to read them. Overall, Moving Day was very good!
