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 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....

"Narrator Cassandra Morris is perfect as ÒpizzazzyÓ second-grader Jules Bloom. Her cadence and voice are light and girlish yet strong, an excellent characterization for a girl who would rather dig worms than play beauty makeover. But Jules isnÕt a tomboy either. SheÕs Jules. She wants to be a star and is willing to audition even if sheÕs in danger of throwing up. Morris paces the drama, both internal and external, superbly. ThereÕs plenty of both, as Jules needs a new best friend, and the perfect candidate, a girl from England, has just joined her class. MorrisÕs youthful-sounding timbre and British accent are charming. The exuberance of this production is endearing and entertaining. A.M.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
