Book Description:
A delectable comedy for every woman who's ever wondered if buying that six-dollar box of organic crackers makes her a hero or a sucker.
Julia Bailey is a mompreneur with too many principles and too little time. Her fledgling company, Julia's Child, makes organic toddler meals like Gentle Lentil and Give Peas a Chance. But turning a profit while saving the world proves tricky as Julia must face a ninety-two-pound TV diva, an ill-timed protest rally, and a room full of one hundred lactating breasts. Will she get her big break before her family reaches the breaking point? In the end, it is a story about motherhood's choices: organic versus local, paper versus plastic, staying at home versus risking it all.
A cookbook author's hilarious fiction debut, Julia's Child will have foodies and all-natural mamas alike laughing, cheering, and asking for more.

My Review:

To start my review for Julia's Child, I will state that at first it took me a little while to get into the book. Then after I started to get into it, Julia's Child lost my attention again. My daughter loaned it to me thinking that I would like it. I did finish it, but just because of her. 

The story to me was kinda slow. Mostly was about Julia getting over her fears of almost every thing she was trying to do. I know we all do think about like this when there is something big we are trying to do. But for almost every thing to go wrong as well. Okay enough said on that. I will say I did like Julia's mindset to at least keep trying no matter what did happen.  

Sarah Pinneo did do a great job creating fully developed characters. I loved Julia's two little boys. Her crazy partner was a hoot. I will not go any further in to the book. I do not want to discourage any one from reading this novel.  Not all books are for everyone, this was the case for Julia's Child and Me, it just wasn't for me.   

And that is the reason for my rating of:

4 Clock Rating!
