In Moving Day, the first book in Meg Cabot’s Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls series, the title character offers numerous rules for every aspect of life, from “First Impressions Are Very Important,” to “You Can’t Let Your Family Move into a Haunted House.” However, the list of rules has expanded dramatically with Scholastic’s introduction of a dedicated Web site for Cabot’s series that, among other features, allows registered users to suggest their own rules, in Rules of the Month contests of various topics. In the two months since the site’s launch, more than 18,000 rules have been added to members’ personalized Rule Notebooks. The site also includes message boards, games, quizzes and other features.
