Review: That's Not Hay In My Hair by:Juliette Turner
About the Book:
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.
Eleven year old, Jules loves the New York life, the busy bustling people, the grime, and the loud sounds. Her life seems pretty simple, if you ask her. That is until, her mom decides it's time to move back home. To Texas. Jules doesn't really remember to much about their ranch in Texas, so she is pretty excited to see what all the fuss is about. But that all changes, when her city friends tell her of snakes, coyotes, scorpions, and worst of all no people.
Arriving at the ranch, things are already very exciting, with horses trying to run off and Longhorns about ready to have some babies. Jules begin to think it isn't going to be to bad, that is until she comes face to face with a snake. As they get settled in, they discover that things aren't always easy on the ranch. And some times, you are with fabulous chaos.
That's Not Hay In My Hair is a wonderful book. I loved how this book could have you laughing and crying from one minute to the next. I really enjoyed the adventure that Jules took us through. I hope to read many more books from this author really soon!
