Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-Readers who can't wait for the next Clementine, Gooney Bird, or Judy Moody will be pleased to meet feisty seven-year-old Jules Bloom. She and her family are in a restaurant when a casting director invites her to audition for a mouthwash commercial. Jules works hard to learn her lines and worries about all the things that could go wrong. She tries to make new friends while inadvertently patching things up with her ex-best friend. Her greatest challenge comes when she learns that the mouthwash has an orange flavor, which she detests. Of course everything works out, and Important Lessons about friendship and life are learned. The child's lively voice will hold the attention of young readers, but she often sounds older than seven. The large-print text is interspersed with cheery line drawings; Jules's lists, such as "Things I will NOT do at my audition: 1. Burp into the microphone when I mean to sing into the microphone"; and playful chapter titles like "Take Six: promising playdates, spaghetti with peanut butter, and other distractions."-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AKα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Second-grader Jules lives in a NYC apartment with her parents and little brother, Big Henry. She already knows life can take funny turns—her best friend, Charlotte, has dumped her. Then things change again: (1) A new girl from England, Elinor, joins the class and has best-friend potential; (2) Jules is spotted by a talent agent and asked to audition for a commercial. (Note: Jules likes to make numbered lists, which appear in hand-lettering throughout the book.) But this bubble of excitement deflates when Jules learns the product she might be promoting is orange mouthwash. And anything orange-tasting makes her throw up. Even for a sophisticated New Yorker, Jules seems several years older than seven, and whether somewhat-older kids will want to read down is always a question. Still, Jules is a bouncy-enough heroine, and readers will respond to both the friendship issues always in play as well as the possibility of stardom on the horizon. And the horizon, of course, is the upcoming sequel. Illustrations not seen. Grades 1-3. --Ilene Cooper

More About the Author

www.bethain.com
www.tincanstilts.com

I was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania. (Yes, that Hershey--the one with all the chocolate!) But then my family moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania where I got to grow up across the street from my best friend, ride bikes after school, and get wet to my ankles in the creek in my neighborhood, trying to save frogs from being swept away.

Then some things like junior high and high school happened and I was a cheerleader and a soccer player and a math-homework-avoider and a soap-opera watcher and an inventor of crazy-delicious after school snacks, and I was all kinds of other junior high and high school things. And then, I was lucky enough to go away to college, near the great city of Boston, Massachusetts where I learned a lot and met loads of interesting people and where I made very good friends with a lot of people from New York who dragged me back to New York City with them and well, that was the end of that.

I fell in love with NYC (it took a while but then wow! did I love it), and I met my husband there, and I found my career there, and I had my kids there. And now, because I am from Pennsylvania and because there is just something about a small town, I live in the lovely Port Washington, Long Island where New York City is just a hop, skip, and a train ride away (and where it is more appropriate to blast music while transporting children than it is on the Upper West Side--not that I didn't try).

My 7 year old loved this book so much, she finished it in a day. The librarian suggested it when we told her we were looking for something age appropriate and funny, and she was spot on. Because my daughter is 7 and Jules is also, and has a 4 year old brother, she felt that she could really relate. I came on Amazon to see what other books were in the series, and I wish that there were more already.

Jules has become a hit in our household. Imagine a more sophisticated and urban Ramona. She is an authentic kid with whom her reader will instantly relate. The writing is terrific, as are the illustrations. There are few books that appeal to both kid and parents - this is one of them! Funny and poignant, but most of all believable. We are fans of Jules Bloom!

This is the first of the series about Jules...who is quite a character! I bought this book for a little 8 yr-old friend of mine. Since buying this title, I have purchased two more. Excellent for young readers!

I loved this book not only because the main character has a similar name to my own daughter, but also because of the great story and the fun adventure that this girl has. She is a great character that my daughter loved. I have to say after reading the story with her that I have to agree. I look forward to reading more stories about this character in the future and you will too!

I bought this for a young lady who is really into technology in hope that she would discover the beauty of reading a book. I also liked the fact that it is a series.

This is such a cute read. It reminds me a lot of my daughter, and I know she will enjoy this series, not only now but later. I love the fact that Jules keeps lists, as even being an adult I keep lists too. I thought this was normal? No?
Starring Jules reminds me of Junie B with a mix of Fancy Nancy. I absolutely adore it.
I loved it when Beth wrote out how the new student sounds with her accent, brilliant! I can not wait for the rest of this series, I mean, who could totally pass up on a sparking, dancy, imagination little girl? Jules even learns words like: pizzazz, snazzy, and improvise. I love adding vocabulary to my daughter’s world, and with this book it is easily done!
