Welcome to Girl on the Move!  

My mission is simple: Get as many books as possible into the hands of as many kids as possible.

I fully believe…

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” – Jojo Moyes in Me Before You

I’m Julie and I am a Girl on the Move! I was born and raised in Southern California. I moved to the East Coast after college but returned to California after too many winters shoveling snow! I am an elementary teacher and love spending time with my family, traveling and reading books.

Through email newsletters, social media recommendations, a YouTube channel, connecting with authors, and conversations with parents and teachers, my goal is to help 8-12 year-old readers find their next right book.

Whether we’re on the road, in the air, or in our favorite reading chair, let’s discover the world together! I am committed to inspiring each and every one of my readers to read more, chase big dreams and step out of their comfort zones to explore new adventures and places.


I absolutely love connecting with readers, so feel free to send me an email at MGLitList {at} gmail {dot} com anytime!  And if you live in Southern California or are visiting, I’d love to meet up to chat about books or travel.
