Julep O'Toole: Miss Independent

11 years old is plenty old enough to be able to wear makeup, have stylish clothes, and own a cell phone, don't you think? Julep O' Toole certainly thinks so, but her mother has different ideas about her daughter's independence. While Julep wants to grow up and become an independent person, her mother seems like she's not letting her, especially after a mortifying experience at the mall! Soon, mother and daughter aren't even speaking to each other, and Julep's afraid she's ruined things permanently between herself and her mom! Can Julep fix things between her and her mom AND become an independent girl at the same time? Trudi Trueit, author of this fabulous book writes sincerely and with humor in this sweet and funny second book of the Julep O' Toole series. Mothers and daughters will both love and enjoy this novel about growing up.
