Ten-year-old Julia Gillian knows everything about her quirky neighbors, her Minneapolis neighborhood, even the inscrutable “claw machine” in the back of the corner hardware store. The one thing Julia Gillian doesn’t know is how the book she’s reading is going to end. It doesn’t seem as if it’s going to have a happy ending, and that scares her. But Julia learns a little something about fear: sometimes you just have to work through it. And though bad things do happen sometimes, having good friends and family around you makes life a bit less scary—and much more fun. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Julia Gillian’s fears and their ultimate resolution are very relatable. The book is well paced…[and] capture[s] Julia Gillian’s slightly whimsical personality, and overall as satisfying as the strawberry bubble tea served at the Quang Restaurant.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Emily Bauer is an unobtrusive narrator who lets the characters shine. Effervescent Julia is full of kid-centered ideas. Her parents are either distracted or genuinely sympathetic. Brother Zap swings from a young-adult anomie to wild enthusiasm. The personalities Bauer gives these characters are distinct, believable, and just plain fun.”


  • “Julia Gillian isn’t the perky, smart-mouthed heroine one finds in many contemporary books. Instead, she is acutely conscious of achieving a new maturity that allows her to question authority and to assert herself—not bad for a nine-year-old.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A fresh, winsome heroine learns a lesson about facing her fears.”
