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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fun Choice for Country Girls at Heart Imagine moving from downtown New York City, to a middle-of-no-where Texas longhorn ranch. Sound pretty extreme? Well, that is precisely what Jules O’Connor and her mother do between the pages of Juliette Turner’s brand new novel, “That’s Not Hay in My Hair”. Suited for the tween-age reader, “That’s Not Hay in My Hair” is like a gentle jaunt through the pasture. With plenty of details, colourful descriptions, and one part in particular that I dare you not to cry, Miss Turner will take you home to the range for a visit with the horses, a fourth of July celebration, and just a typical day of caring for the longhorns, dogs, cats, horses, and pony that make up the residence of this Texas ranch. At times, “That’s Not Hay in My Hair” may seem to move very slowly. Still, this meandering style is not without its charm. The only drawback to this book is that some of the adult characters (two in particular) may act a bit unrealistic at times – even immature, and less than exemplary to young readers. Aside from this, “That’s Not Hay in My Hair” makes a solid choice for any country-girls-at-heart, whether they live in New York and L.A., or miles and miles from the nearest civilization. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

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.
