When Jules lands a role on a new TV show, she gets stuck choosing between taking part in her class play and shooting a sitcom. And that's only half the drama!
With a quiet best friend who won't ever hoot and holler and an ex-best friend who may be moving to the burbs, Jules's insides are all mixed up. She'll need a little bit of nerve and a whole lot of pizzazz if she wants to make it through the last month of second grade without turning into a drama queen!
Beth Ain was raised in Allentown, PA, but fell in love with New York City first as a little girl after hot pretzels from a corner stand warmed her up on a cold winter day, and again later, right after she knocked the mirror off of a city bus with her trailer the day she moved in. The driver quickly forgave her and she quickly decided it was the greatest city on earth. She did eventually head for the hills of Port Washington, Long Island along with her husband and two children, where small-town life has no shortage of inspiration, and where she can see the Empire State Building on her morning run - making it pretty easy to imagine what Jules is up to over there.
In this second hilarious chapter book about eight-year-old Jules Bloom, Jules has to navigate complicated friendships and spine-tingling stage fright as her star finally begins to rise.
