Young know-it-all Julia Gillian thinks she knows everything about her Minneapolis neighborhood. However, Julia fears that a book she has been reading won't have a happy ending. Learning to overcome her fear, she finds that the help of family and friends can make discovering the unknown more enjoyable.
Ten-year-old Julia Gillian knows everything about her quirky neighbors, her Minneapolis neighborhood, even the inscrutable claw machine in the back of the corner hardware store. The one thing Julia Gillian doesn't know is how the book she's reading is going to end. It doesn't seem as if it's going to have a happy ending, and that scares her. But Julia learns a little something about fear: sometimes you just have to work through it. And though bad things do happen sometimes, having good friends and family around you makes life a bit less scary - and much more fun.
