I love Allie Finkle. Her character is so real. She's just a typical 9 year old girl, trying to figure out all that social stuff that starts to become so important (too important?) as girls near teen hood. In this installment, Allie lies to her best friends about her weekend plans. She immediately knows what she did is wrong, she feels bad about the lying, and she ends up regreting every decision she made about the weekend. She learns her lesson well. My favorite rule from this book is "Boy-crazy girls don't understand that not all boys are great."

Uncle Jay continues to be a hoot and a half. He's every kids' dream uncle. His character provides the most laughs for the parents reading this series.

One quibble with this series: Brittany Hauser is almost too nasty to be real. Is her mother really so clueless?
