Author: Kristen Tracy
Age: Middle-grade


New this fall is a fun and funny [kwlink 5372]book[/kwlink[/b] by author Kristen Tracy called Camille McPhee Fell Under The Bus. Here’s a fun fact: the [kwlink 2372]book[/kwlink[/b] is actually based on a real-life event that happened to the author when she was in grade school and fell underneath a school bus!


The Story

Camille McPhee is 10 years old and attends 4th Grade at her Idaho elementary school. Not only that, she has low blodd sugar, which means she has to carry around extra food in a cooler – not very fun at all. And neither is falling underneath a school bus – which also happens to poor Camille in this [kwlink 19048]book[/kwlink[/b].


And the bad luck keeps piling on. Camille’s cat, Checkers is lost. And her best friend in the whole world, Sally, moves to Japan. You’d think with so many unfortunate things happening at once Camille would find it pretty hard to stay optimistic, right?


Wrong. You see, Camille is what her mom calls a hopeful kind of girl. She knows there’s always something to be positive about, and she finds the good in every bad situation. Besides, there are plenty of things that make Camille feel happy: her gifted reading class, a new mattress that doesn’t squeak, sneaking tastes of banned food and the big blue butterfly.


And making a new friend – what could be better than that?


The Author

Kristen Tracy is not only an author, she also teaches, writes poetry and promotes bear safety. She’s also written two other great [kwlink 5257]books[/kwlink[/b] for kids: Lost It and Crimes Of The Sarahs. If you wanna find out more about this author, visit her website at www.kristentracy.com.

There are countless reasons people come up with that it's wrong, but there are also countless reasons why it's not. "Diversity is important" To whom? To what extent? For what goal?  "A person's feelings are valid" What does that even mean? Valid in what sense?
