Allie, First at Last

We rated this book:


Allie believes that there is no better feeling than winning and being first at something. Except that she has one problem…she has never actually won anything. Everyone in her family has been first at something already, including her younger sister, and she feels pressure to contribute to her family’s award shelf. Finally, she has a chance when a trailblazer contest is announced at school. Her ex-best friend is also entering the competition and Allie is sure Sara will win. Will Allie still be able to snag first prize and possibly win back her best friend or will she lose it all?

Allie, First At Last is an inspiring story with problems that many kids face like, feeling pressure, and changing relationships with friends and siblings. Once she realizes what it really means to win, Allie starts to see her life in a totally different way. This book deserves three and a half stars because while it was interesting, I don’t think it appealed to me as much as it would other readers. Normally, I wouldn’t really read a book with a storyline like this one but I still did like it and I am sure many other kids would, too.
