As Herself (Starring Jules #1)
Lights! Camera! Action! A hilarious chapter book debut from a fabulous new talent! Things to Know About Me by Jules Bloom: 1. 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 Bloom wears mismatched socks on purpose, dreams of having pizzazz, and sings made-up jingles in public. But she never thought anyone would notice. Now Jules has an audition for a TV commercial, and she doesn't want to ruin THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. 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 then maybe, just maybe, Jules will be ready for her close-up...
