Ain, Beth Starring Jules: As Herself 146 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2013 (MAR). $10.19 (Rating: G)
Jules is thrilled by the arrival of a new girl at school. Its about time she had a best-friend again and she hit it off right away with Elinor! Jules is given an opportunity to audition for a commercial, but she is going to need help. She turns to her former best friend for advice and is mostly just really nervous. But her creative spunk carries her through and she has a great time!
This book was generically unmemorable. Meaning I read it just two days ago and could hardly recall it to save my life. Although the cover art might change, its currently unappealing. I just couldn't buy into the character of Jules and found that I didn't much care if she got to be in a commercial or not.
