Lights! Camera! Action! A new chapter book star is on the rise!Things to Know About Meby Jules Bloom1. I am a scrambled-eggs-and-chocolate-milk type person. 2. I have an audition for a TV commercial (which would be great if I were a tall-icy-drink type person.)3. I am in between best friends right now.4. I am worried that the audition will be a disaster. (See #1 and #3!) Jules doesn't want to ruin THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME, and she's willing to turn to anyone for help--even her know-it-all ex-best friend! If only that lovely new girl in class would turn out to be the new best friend of her dreams, maybe, just maybe, Jules will be ready for her close-up....
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Vivacious Jules Bloom, with her singular wardrobe and all-around flair for the dramatic, hopes to accomplish a great deal before she turns eight, including finding a new best friend, since she's on the outs with her former bestie, Charlotte. When a casting director invites Jules to audition for a mouthwash commercial, Jules throws herself into preparing for the perfect audition. Setbacks arise-the flavor of the mouthwash, orange, is loathsome to Jules ("Orange anything reminds me of throw up, partly because I threw up in a taxicab after eating... orange sherbet")-and Charlotte keeps interfering with Jules's efforts to befriend Elinor, the new girl from London. Ain (The Revolution of Sabine) gives Jules a truly funny narrative voice; her personality, misunderstandings, and tendency to overthink things are the driving force behind the story, though Jules's relationship with her parents and brother is also a standout. Fans of Judy Moody, Clementine, and other iconoclastic heroines will love getting to know Jules and look forward to the next book in this planned series. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7-10.
