New this fall is a fun and funny book by author Kristen Tracy called Camille McPhee Fell Under The Bus.

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?

    Here is how to fix your life mentally. Sit down in a quite environment. Once you are settled, Close your eyes. If this is your first time doing this then follow part one if this is not your first go right to part 2. Part 1: With your eyes closed think back in your early child hood as far as you can. Ask your self question in 3rd person point of view. Ask your self about specific events and things that you did that brought you down from when you were once confident mentally about life. Example. ask "When you went to the zoo with your mom, you remember sneaking a stuff animal out of the zoo and your parents caught you. Why does this still trouble you and why shouldn't you worry about it today. " answer "Because it makes me feel bad about myself and i feel bad for my choices bringing a bad experience to those around me. I shouldn't worry about it because  it happened so long ago but something  in my head forces me to be afraid of the past. " Part 2: do the same as part one but relate it with TODAY and not the past.
