Product Description

That's Not Hay in My Hair by Juliette Turner is a fictional take on Juliette's life, as she moved from the bustling streets of New York City to a 300 acre ranch in the middle of rural Texas. When city-slicker Juliette gets the news that they are moving to Texas, she quickly realizes that she will have to trade in her ballet shoes and favorite French bistros for snake-proof boots and fresh-caught catfish from the local pond.

At first Juliette loves the idea of this new adventure and can't wait to see what real-life cowboys look like! But after a few short hours at the ranch, she discovers she doesn't love the lack of cell phone service and she doesn't like bats OR snakes!

Based off of the author's life experience.

Publisher's Description

New York City life had crammed sidewalks, gasoline-filled puddles, and angry taxi drivers, but Juliette enjoyed the towering sky-scrapers, the half-block walk to school, and the restaurant smells wafting into her bedroom. She had never cared for a horse, let alone a long-horn, when her mother announced their imminent move to a 300 acre ranch in Texas, where they would be caring for three horses, five dogs, twenty-five longhorns, and a cat … all by themselves.

Juliette couldn’t help feeling excited, even though she’d have to climb a hill to get a bar of cell-phone service. Soon she was running from bats and snakes, rescuing a calf from a twenty-foot ditch, medicating ponies, and having adventures so crazy it’s hard to believe they’re for real—but it all happened exactly how it’s written.

Get ready for side-splitting laughs, heart-wrenching tears, and surprising life lessons learned down on the farm and shared by fourteen-year-old Juliette Turner.

Editorial Reviews

Jules and her mother moved to New York City when she was 5, so she doesn’t really remember the Texas ranch they left behind. But Jules is now 10, and her mom wants to return to her Texas roots. Instead of a cramped apartment, they are now living on a 300-acre ranch, complete with horses, dogs, and longhorn cows. Life is suddenly filled with chores, her grandparents’ bickering, animals that need cared for, and wide-open spaces---but Jules’ love of animals makes it a perfect fit. In this poignant mother-daughter story, Turner immerses young readers in ranch life and, to a lesser extent, the transition to middle school. Although the character development is uneven and the plot sometimes lacks direction, the sense of place is fully realized. Despite its rough edges, Turner’s novel will be well received by animal lovers and fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Farmer Boy (1933) or Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s Shiloh (1991). --- Melissa Moore
