Reviews for **American Girls Collection: Meet Julie
5The year is 1974. Nine-year-old Julie Albright is about to begin fourth grade; and, while she should be excited for the big day, she's anything but. Back at Sierra Vista Elementary School, Julie would be entering Mr. Nader's fourth grade class with her best friend, Ivy Ling. Everyone loves Mr. Nader, because he allows his students to hatch butterflies right in class; and Julie's friendship with Ivy means the world to her. But things have changed practically overnight. Suddenly, Julie's parents are divorced, and Julie is forced to move to an apartment above her mother's groovy shop, Gladrags, with her fifteen-year-old sister, Tracy. Worse than that, Julie is forced to leave her beloved bunny, Nutmeg, at her father's place, and is only permitted to see her father, a pilot, every other weekend. Luckily, she isn't too far from her old home. Unfortunately, however, she is just far enough away to have to attend a new school in San Francisco - Jack London Elementary.

From day one, it is evident that Jack London Elementary left much to be desired. Julie's new teacher, Ms. Hunter, is as strict as they come, and doesn't allow anyone in class to talk. Principal Sanchez has a habit of walking through the halls handing out demerits to anyone who breaks even the tiniest school rule. Julie just knows that she won't fit in with her classmates. And, she seems to be correct. The Water Fountain Girls - Amanda, Alison, and Angela - already know that Julie's parents are divorced, and seem to look for any excuse to throw that bit of information in her face; and the only person who will talk to her is a boy named T.J. But when Julie learns that Jack London Elementary has its very own basketball team, she couldn't be more excited. Julie has been shooting hoops with her father in the driveway since she was a tiny tot, and can't wait to sign-up. But when nasty Coach Manley proclaims that there's no space for girls on a boys basketball team, Julie decides to take matters into her own hands to show the world that girls are just as good as boys - if only they're given a chance to prove their worth!
