With Blast from the Past, Meg Cabot amusingly teaches lessons about history and interpersonal skills. The sixth book in the Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls series finds Allie facing her old classmates on a field trip to Honeypot Prairie, a historical reenactment site. Allie wants to be excited about her first field trip ever, but her cat refuses to come out of the wall (their new house had a leak) and she has to see those old enemies from her old school. But there is a bright spot to this disappointing field trip—Allie learns that George Washington kept a book of rules too! Blast from the Past is a cute story with an underlying educational theme.
