I loved Holly Goldberg Sloan’s Counting by 7’s so I immediately picked up her newest book. (Yes, I published this on my socials several years ago.)

Julia is still mourning the loss of her dog, Ramon, and focused on growing taller – because she is small (she does not use ‘short’). Her mom forces her to audition for the local theater production and it changes her summer.

I love Julia – she is honest, a thinker, a daydreamer, unintentionally puts herself in some interesting situations and makes friends with grown ups while trying to understand their world.

Sweet. Heartwarming. Funny. Definitely worth reading.

Highly recommended for ages 8 and up.
