    I am currently reading the book, Stage Fright By; Meg Cabot. In this book there is a girl named Allie and it is going to be open house in her class in a few days. So Allie’s class is going to put on a play called Princess Penelope and realm of recycling. I remember the first time that I did a play I was so excited that I almost forgot my lines. Sofia, Erica, Kevin (Allie’s little brother) and Allie are walking home from school and Erica starts talking about their play, Allie has her mind set to trying out for princess Penelope until Erica starts saying Sofia you would be great for the role of Princess Penelope. Erica asks Allie what she wants to be in the play but Allie doesn’t want to make Sofia and Erica feel bad so she says I’m just going to try out for a recycling fairy. When Allie gets home all she wants to do is cry, she really wanted the part of Princess Penelope but everyone else wants Sofia to get the part. Allie’s uncle talks Allie into going for the part she wants, because Allie’s teacher might have been picturing Allie for the role of Princess Penelope not Sofia as the part. Once I felt that way because I had been practicing and practicing for the lead role and then my friend comes up to me and says ‘’don’t you think Catlin would be perfect for the lead role’’ and I say ‘’Ya’’ but inside I was really sad. Once I was at this acting camp with my friend and it was the audition day and she auditioned for Annie and there was this one other girl who was auditioning for Annie as well, and they both read the same line to addition off and my friend was so nervous that her voice started to shake and her voice was a little to shaky so the other girl got the part. So the next morning Allie wakes up and she’s ready to addition for the part of Princess Penelope, can she do it? I don’t know I’ll have to read more to find out. I give this book five stars I hope you will read this book.

    In this fourth volume of Allie's rules, there are fewer new rules. It is the time of year for class presentations, and Allie's class is going to put on a play, "Princess Penelope in the Realm of Recycling." Of course, Cheyenne wants to play Princess Penelope, but so do all the other girls in the class!There are great and entertaining scenes with Allie and her best friend competing for the Princess role, but there is also an overload of ridiculous green characters -- compact fluorescent bulb fairies, recycled paper dragons, public transportation elves, water conservation mermaids, unplug-when-not-in-use unicorns, and reusable water bottle wizards. All these characters "teach Penelope about ways she can save the environment so that her father's kingdom, which has begun to be destroyed by pollution, will be able to be enjoyed by many generations to come." Although amusing, it seemed rather heavy-handed.With all these unusual characters, it is no wonder that Allie and all her friends want to be the princess. Who would want to be the fairy godmother of reusable cloth shopping bags if you could be a beautiful princess?Lots of social situations and friendships for Allie to balance, not to mention a case of stage fright. For girls aged 7 to 10.

    Cute book. My daughter, who is Allie's age exactly, enjoyed it, as did I, although my daughter's opinion was that the play sounded a bit silly, and she could not imagine her classmates being excited to put it on. I think Uncle Jay should get his degree in child psychology. He always knows what to say to Allie to help her figure things out herself.One little thing bothers me about these books: Allie's mom is a chair of a department at the college, and now she's taken on a second job as a movie reviewer, yet she is always home when Allie comes home for lunch, and she's there after school, too. Super mom indeed.

    My favorite character was probably Allie because she sometimes thinks about her self but then asks for help. For example when Allie did not get the part of Princess Penelope,she talked it out with her parents. In this book there was a lot that surprised me, like when they were putting on there play, but what rely made me jet out of my seat was all the places that she got inspiration and in the play how the she was so brave and intelligent. I would change the ending, because it was not the best ending but still a great book. and that is why I am going to give this book four stars.

    Honestly, Meg Cabot has got to have some actual fourth-graders on her payroll. She channels the things they think, say, & do so well that it's kind of uncanny at points, & because of that, I have to imagine these books are incredibly popular with the elementary age set for that reason alone. She nails it so well that I feel like I'm reading about myself in fourth grade, & that's a feat considering just how many years ago that was. There may not have been cell phones then, but having a special place behind the playground bushes where you & your friends play a continuing game called "Queens?" It's like a time machine. In this one, Allie's class is beyond excited to learn that they'll be putting on a play for their school's open house. But things get a little complicated when every single girl in the class wants to try out for the main part, that of a princess - including Allie & one of her very best friends, not to mention the class mean girl. Will everyone survive this very exciting & upsetting experience, with self-esteem & friendships still intact? I hope Cabot keeps writing these, because I love a lot of realistic series out there for elementary-age girls right now, but none of them seem to chime so perfectly with what I remember it being like as this one - & that makes reading them a very entertaining & nostalgic experience for us older people, too.

    Stage Fright comes out strong, setting a very powerful and perfect tone to a great story. This series really is great for fans of Barbara Park's snarky Junie B. Jones. It's the same brand of humor, and fans who may have outgrown Junie and are looking for something new to read will definitely find the same type of honest outlook on the world from Allie. Cabot is really good at keeping up with current pop culture and putting in age appropriate references, which would make the books all the more appealing with her target audience. This book is not only adorable and kid-friendly, it also contains simple environmentally-friendly facts for them to learn and hopefully adapt in their own lives. We need more books telling our children how to be environmentally friendly in this day and age, so kudos to Cabot for blending it in with the plot so well! This book, like its predecessors and sequel, carries out fantastic characterization and is just as humorous, too! The ending's a little anticlimactic and predictable, and I do not think the title fits even slightly, but it's a cute read and I'm sure kids would really enjoy it.

    I liked this book a lot.I liked it because it was realistic.The whole book was realistic because the things that happened in this book can happen in real life.For example, your class can have a play and you want the lead but your friend wants it more than you do.That can really happen.You would like this book if you like The Princess Diaries or the Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls series.You would like this book because Meg Cabot wrote both books and this apart of the series.This is book 4.Their wasn't a challenge in this book for me.One for someone else might be how at the beginning of each chapter it says the rule number but you don't know if it is the chapter number too.It is though.This can be a challenge because it is confusing.This book was about how room 209 was having a play and Allie wants the lead.Allie is guaranteed to win since her mom has a job as film critic on the local cable show and her uncle's secret past as a theater major.But then Allie finds out that her friend Sophie wants the part more than her!Allie has to follow the rules of friendship and still make her own dreams come true.

    Reviewed by Michaela Pallante aka "Mickey" for TeensReadToo.comAllie 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.

    This book is interesting to me because the main character's name is called Allie and I am also called Allie. So this book is about Mrs. Hunter class is going to put on a play. Allie really wants to be the princess as her role. She tried very hard on it. But Mrs. Hunter thinks Allie will do good at the role of the evil queen. She was very disappointed at first. But it turns out to be the biggest role than other's, even the princess's role. So she now know that it's not because Mrs. Hunter doesn't like Allie so she gave her the evil queen's role, it is because she acts so well when she is trying out for the princess and the teacher thinks that she will be good at acting the evil queen because it has the most part. When they are trying out, she did very well, so Mrs. Hunter decided to give the evil queen's part to Allie. At the end, Allie was really happy that she got the role of the evil queen.

    Stage FrightMeg Cabot5 starsThis book is really great. It is about 2 friends who both try out for the same part in the school play. They both really want.But only one gets it. They do their best to not spoil their friendship because of this, but there are a few consequences. If I had to choose, I would choose Allie as a friend. She is funny, nice and I find is the most like me because she has younger siblings. Also she treats her friends the way I treat mine.Similar books like this one are Moving Day, Best Friends and Drama Queens, Glitterati and the Great Fakeout.They are all about Allie Finkle and her friends(Erica, Caroline and Sophie).In difficulty rating, this book was just right.If you want to know anymore, read the book!

    Jessica Mitchell, 10 Stage FrightMeg CabotI liked this book better then the last installment of 'Allie Finkles Rules For Girls'. The front and backcover layouts were very clever, I liked them. A nice thing about this book, was that there were plenty of plot twists, and little clifthangers. Therefore, even though the writing was kind of dull and slow, (thats why its four, not five stars) , it was a real page turner.Another reason I liked this book, was, that it was chick-lit. You can see it in the title. I liked it because of that reason, because nowadays, chick-lit books are all YA, and theres hardcore romance and thoughts younger people like me would only understand half of. Its always nice to find a book like this for kids. Perferably, girls!

    3.5 StarsAllie Finkle and her fourth grade class are putting on play for the school’s open house. Everyone is really excited to audition and several students want to be the lead. Including Allie’s BFF Sophie and Cheyenne, a mean girl in Allie’s class.After reading through the play, Allie decides she wants to try out for the Princess too and asks her Uncle Jay for help. Allie isn’t sure how Sophie will react when she finds out Allie is auditioning too, but Allie doesn’t allow this to hold her back.Things take an interesting turn when Mrs. Hunter, Allie’s fourth grade teacher, announces the parts. Sometimes stardom can quickly go to one’s head… even a fourth grader’s!

    When she finds out her class is going to put on a play about recycling, Allie is cetain that she will get the role of the princess. So you can imagine how devistated she is when Mrs. Hunter gives Allie the role of the evil Queen. Allie manages to find the good in the bad, though, even beging to enjoy her role, but when her friend Sophie lets the role of the princess go to her head, can Allie fix the problem before the big show?Another good installment in the series. Cabot has a good ear for the voice of the junior girl. There is an excellent explanation of the actor's craft in this book for the younger set. Fun read.

    This book seems really good! I have read the first 3 already and just waiting to go get this one! Allie has been through so many things in the past, such as moving, bullies, making new friends, etc... She just wants all the drama to stop. She just wants Cheyenne to leave the school, she has been so mean to Allie, Erica and her other friends since she moved in from Toronto! And her old friends at her old school like Brittany, well she wasn't friend, she was actually a bully. She just wants it to come to an END!

    This was the first book of Meg Cabot and now I like her as an author because she is very descriptive and funny. In this book, Allie Finkle really wants to get the main part in the class musical, Princess Penelope and the Realm of Recycling, that her favourite and pretty teacher, Ms Hunter wrote, but her best friends don't know, so they encourage Allie's friend Sophie to audition for Princess Penelope. But Allie will do anything to make sure the new mean girl Cheyyene doesn't get the main part.Go through an amazing adventure of Allie, Cheyyene and Allie's friends.

    Allie is a fourth grade student.Realistic FictionAllie wants the school lead in her class play, so do all the other girls. She tries out even though one of her best friends also wants the part. She doesn't get the part but gets another good character. It takes her a while to warm up to playing that part but she does it and does it well. Then her friend Sophie accuses her of stealing the show. Soon Sophie is out of the play and Cheyenne, who is not a nice girl, has the lead and Allie doesn't want her to get her way again.

    I actually liked the part where Allie was assigned the part as the villain, because the villains have to be played by really good actors, to make the drama better. Of course, Cheyenne throws a fit and begs for the princess part. While Sophia, one of Allie's friends, gets a little bit arrogant over the fact that she is the main character. But I think that the best part about this book is that no matter how much Cheyenne whines, she has to be the part she was assigned to.

    Allie is soo into her PENELOPE PRINCESS, that she forgets about everyone's feelings!

But after the auditions, Allie got the part of EVIL QUEEEN, and was soo depressed and sophie was Penelope Princess! But then she found out found out that the EVIL QUEEN, was an excellent PART!!:)

    I originally started reading this series to provide my 1st grader with some chapter book experience while also staying somewhat G-rated with the content. We loved these books... we still joke about the rule about never having a pet that can poop in your hand. LOL.My mother and I are big fans of the Princess Diaries series, so we had to check out more by Meg Cabot. I met her in June 2004 at a book signing in Bloomington, IN. She was awesome. I also have a signed copy of Teen Idol.

    Room 209 is putting on a play for the school open house. Allie, her friend Sophie and most of the other girls in the class want to be the princess, including snobby Cheyenne (from book 3). Allie's disappointed when she doesn't get the part, but she learns several good life lessons while they practice for the performance. Another reasonably well done story that will be great for the intended 4th grade girl audience. Really a 3.5 star.

    All the fourth grade girls want to be Princess Penelope but only one girl can. A girl who is from Canada thinks she should be the princess because she has always be the lead star in every play she has been in. Allie, her friend Sophie, and Cheyenne(the girl from Canada) are trying to win to play Princess Penelope.

    In this book, Allie is kind of like me in my first community play (not school). I didn't get the part I had wanted and I was very sad. But just like Allie, I learned to be happy for what you get and find the positive side of not being the main character. I had a lot of fun just like her. 5 plays later, I still love the theater!

    Number 4 in Allie Finkle. Cabot must listen to 4th grade girls talk because the dialog is pretty funny and the thought process of Allie seems dead on (though I can't really remember what I thought about in 4th grade). In this book, the class is putting on a play and Allie is going for the lead role, as is her good friend.

    Have you ever wanted to be the star of the show? Allie Finkle wants the same. Mrs.Hunters class is doing the relam of recycling play and allie wants to be the star princess Penople but when her plan but when that dosen't hapen will Allie execpt her character the evil queen. FYI: READ THE THE ALLIE FINKLE SERIES IN ORDER.

    I was just like Allie when I was her age. She makes me chuckle in every book. Number 1 rule: "don't eat anything red". I love how Meg Cabot doesn't just automatically give the main character the "best" life and how realistic she is that young girls rarely get everything they want like the lead in the school play. Yet everything seems to work out in the end, lessons learned.

    This is my least favorite of the series so far. It was still cute, but Allie wasn't nearly as enjoyable in this book as she has been in the past. I think Cabot stretched a thin plot almost past the breaking point, and it was the first time that Allie and her world didn't feel authentic.

  • Lindi

    Allie really wantes this play and her friends think Sophie should get the play it turns out neather of them get the play Allie gets someone else who she did not want. I think she gets stage fright because that is what the book is called I am still reading but IDK yet.

    Definatly not for my age xP But I'd read anything Meg Cabot wrote. It's really cute, made me laugh at times. Allie's acting is honeslty awesome and the big show-offy fat idiot in her class makes me wanna scream. Chenelle, is it? The b****. :P
