Julia will be reading Jules Vs. the Ocean.
From the creator of Not Quite Narwhal comes a story about a young girl determined to impress her older sister by building elaborate sandcastles, even if that means standing up to the ocean and its smash-happy waves!
Jules is going to build the biggest, the fanciest, and the most excellent sandcastle. Her sister will be so impressed.
But the ocean has other plans. Jules keeps building bigger, fancier, and more excellent castles, and waves keep smashing them. And when the ocean takes her bucket, that is the final straw. Jules is going to take a stand!
From beloved storyteller Jessie Sima comes the tongue-in-cheek story of the sand, the sea, and sisterhood—told with her signature warmth, timeless humor, and delightfully playful illustrations.
Julia is thirteen and lives in Brooklyn with her parents, her two sisters and her beloved labradoodle, Riesling. Julia is entering eighth grade where she participates in musical theatre, debate, gardening and the baking club. This past year, she volunteered every Sunday at the Kingsbay Y in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn working at their Sunday Funday program for kids with special needs and has raised money to provide a special needs art studio to the Y. In her spare time, Julia loves hiking, biking, skiing, baking, and most of all READING. Julia’s favorite books of all time are The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. Julia has many younger cousins and loves reading to them whenever they get together.
