About the author
Julia is 8 years old and the author of "Lunchtime". She had a hard time at school during lunch because some of her classmates, even her friends, would make fun of her Korean lunch. They held their noses and said her food smelled funny and looked weird. She loves Korean food and continued to bring it to eat for lunch despite the peer pressure, but she wanted to write this book to help other kids understand that it's not nice to make fun of other people's lunches because it hurts their feelings. Julia lives in Massachusetts and enjoys reading and watching The Great British Baking Show.
