Julie Albright doesn't want to move, even just a few miles away. Moving means leaving her best friend, Ivy, and her pet rabbit, Nutmeg. Worst of all, it means leaving Dad, now that her parents are divorced. Then Julie finds out that her new school has a basketball team, and life starts looking up--until the coach says no girls allowed. When Julie decides to fight for her place on the team, some of her new classmates tease her, and now even Ivy won't talk to her. Will Julie ever feel at home in her new school--and her new life?

More About Megan McDonald, Robert Hunt, Susan McAliley & George Sebok

Megan McDonald Megan McDonald, beloved author of the Judy Moody books, is also a gifted storyteller. She is the author of When the Library Lights Go Out", illustrated by Katherine Tillotson; The Hinky-Pink", illustrated by Brian Floca; and the now-classic Is This a House for Hermit Crab?", illustrated by S.D. Schindler. She lives in Sebastopol, California.

"Sometimes I think I AM Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the award-winning JUDY MOODY books. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

Being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. The author grew up as the youngest of five sisters in a house full of books in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, built bridges across the city and was known to his coworkers as "Little Johnny the Storyteller." Every evening at dinnertime the McDonald family would gather around the kitchen table, talking and telling stories. But with four older sisters, Megan remembers barely being able to get a word in edgewise. "I'm told I began to stutter," she says. “That’s when my mother gave me a notebook, so that I could write down everything I wanted to say!”

Megan McDonald currently resides in Sebastopol, in the state of California.

Welcome, Julie  May 4, 2008
In 1974, after her parents' divorce, Julie moves to another part of San Francisco with her older sister Tracy and her artsy mom, who runs a shop called Gladrags. Though she's close to her sister and to her mother, Julie misses her father, her bunny, and her best friend, Ivy.

Shortly after Julie starts fourth grade at Jack London Elementary School, she learns that they don't have a basketball team for girls so she asks if she can join the boys' team. The coach initially refuses her request, but Julie sticks to her guns. She learns about Title IX and turns in a petition with 150 signatures on it. The coach still refuses to hear her out, so she works up the nerve to talk to her principal about the situation and earns a spot on the team. Later books in the series, such as Julie Tells Her Story, include basketball practice and games.

The Julie books are part of the American Girls line of books, which offer realistic glimpses into America's past through the eyes of young girls and furthermore encourage the girls of today to reach for the stars. With beautiful illustrations by Robert Hunt and a solid story by Megan McDonald, Meet Julie is a welcome addition to the American Girls library.
In a world of burnt-out Britney's and tarnished idols...  Dec 22, 2007
In a world of broken-down, drug-addicted teen stars and pop princesses with tarnished crowns, it is refreshing to read a book about a young girl with strong moral fortitude and solid goals.

Julie Albright, the latest American Girl, is a ten year old girl living in 1970s San Francisco. In the first book, Meet Julie, we learn that her parents have recently divorced, forcing Julie and her sister to move away from their friends, father, and family home. We also learn that Julie is a quietly determined girl who cares deeply about those near to her and the issues that are dear to her.

Why I love Meet Julie:
This book tells the story of a compassionate, intelligent young girl living in a time of great change, yet it never preaches or attempts to make the reader feel guilty. I love that American Girl seems to be committed to addressing the concerns of young women living in the world today by giving them identifiable characters who are faced with similar challenges. It's not enough to tell a young girl that she should have goals and stay out of trouble. I love that American Girl, with these Julie books, actually shows girls how they can stay out of trouble by caring about something greater than themselves. In a world of sad, broken-down Britney's and troubled, unlovely Lyndsey's, it's nice to have a Julie to introduce my daughter to!
She does count....  Oct 14, 2007
Ivy does count as an Asian character. She is just as important as Julie. They are best friends, and they mean the world to each other. Ivy is more than a best friend. She's like a sister. :)
Julie's book was good.....  Sep 27, 2007
All of Julie Albirhgt's stories were a good addition to the AG's collection. They really keep your attention the whole way. However, I do feel that the 70s is to recent to be called Historical. I also feel irritated that it is yet another blonde in the AG. There still isn't an Asian historical, and Ivy dosen't count considering she's just a BF doll. The MAIN girls get more attention. This girl reminds me too much of other American Girls. We need more diversity besides the series of blondes they decided to release this year.
Hang out with Julie  Sep 22, 2007
American Girls gets into their most contemporary times ever with the introduction of Julie Albright, a young girl growing up in 1974 San Francisco. It's an exciting time to be in America--and several things are happening in Julie's own life.

Her parents have obtained a divorce under recently enacted no-fault divorce laws. Julie and her siblings moved with their mom to an apartment above her shop. However, Julie still gets to see her dad when he is not flying around as a pilot.

I am assuming Julie's father kept the house to create a 'homey' atmosphere when the kids come to visit him because otherwise a frequently gone pilot keeping a place that big does not make plot sense. Like Mom, Dad is presented as genuinely loving and open minded. His change in relationship with Julie's mom did not mean that he stopped loving the kids.

On the other hand, I can also see where revisiting an old house could be painful for a child who had to uproot everything in her life, regardless of how nice and hip the visited parent thinks they are now being to the visiting kid. Especially with his salary, he could have gotten a new place to start over.

However, this same storyline DOES earn it's kudos for showing that neither of Julie's parents drug the kids through a nasty custody hearing and/or were not trying to 'play sides' now by saying bad things about the other. Both examples are important for kids who are curious about the outcome of divorce--or more importantly, whose own families personally are undergoing it.

Aside from the dated cultural references, the book described the very positive relationship I continued having with both my parents during and after their own divorce. It will reassure girls--and boys--that it wasn't their fault.
