Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
As second grade comes to an end, the young actress heroine of Starring Jules (As Herself) is about to head to Montreal to shoot a spy film with teen star Emma Saxony. But Jules dreads being separated from best friend Elinor, who is off to spend the summer in London. She does not want to drive to Montreal from NYC with her friend Teddy, who has a habit of throwing up on road trips … or to be apart from her father on her birthday … or to have to slide down a scary mud slide in the film’s climactic scene. Emails from Elinor with “spy assignments” like “Practice stealth” and “Be sure not to let on that you are a tourist” console Jules until she is brave enough to swoop down the mud slide, after all. The voice, humor, and reading level all feel much older than second grade, and the level of privilege of Jules’s classmates (who spend summers in Europe or at a performing arts camp attended by “celebrity kids”) is far removed from the experience of most readers. The ostensible focus of the book—the making of the actual movie—is dispatched briefly, with most attention given to adventures on the road trip (such as when Jules’s little brother’s rubber ducky gets lost in a hotel pool). Still, readers may enjoy vicariously shooting a film, and most young actors likely care more about absent best friends than about fame and fortune. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.; Ages 7 to 10.

Even though she'll be spending it in Quebec filming a movie, child actress Jules' summer is not off to a good start. First, Charlotte gets to go to acting camp, and Elinor is returning to England, leaving Jules feeling lonely. Next, a birthday week with her father is replaced by a road trip with her annoying family friend, Teddy. Finally, teen star Emma Saxony proves to be a rude introduction to the world of celebrities. Nonetheless, Jules continues to expand her world with every challenge, and she explains such new words as enunciate and stealth along the way. Each chapter is full of diverting and dramatic plot twists, making the pacing of the book somewhat breathless, as many problems are given the same urgency. It is obvious that Jules is out of her comfort zone. Luckily, through the help of Elinor's emails, the support of megastar Rick Hinkley and the love of her family, Jules is able to keep an even keel. Fans of Jules' previous books will enjoy seeing the soon-to-be–third-grader back in action as she exuberantly experiences the busy life of a budding television and film star. (Fiction. 6-9)
