ABOUT THIS BOOK

Imagine being Camille McPhee. She has low blood sugar, so she carries extra food in a cooler. Would you want to do that?

Didn't think so.

And you wouldn’t want to fall under the school bus. That happened to Camille too!
Her cat, Checkers, is lost. And her best friend, Sally, moved to Japan.

It would be hard to stay optimistic, right? But Camille is what her mom calls HOPEFUL. Because really? There are plenty of things to be positive about:

gifted reading
a nonsqueaky mattress
eating banned foods
the big blue butterfly

Even making a new friend. Imagine that!

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Kristen Tracy grew up in a small town in Idaho, where she could see the Grand Tetons from her house (though it wasn't a very good view). She’s lived in many places since then, including Los Angeles; Provo, Utah; Kalamazoo, Michigan; Washington, D.C.; and Montpelier, Vermont. She currently lives in San Francisco, where she writes young adult and middle-grade novels, to-do lists, and poems. She has a lot of degrees, including a PhD in English.

The opening scene of this book was inspired by an actual event in Kristen Tracy's lively elementary school years.
