Camille McPhee Fell Under the Bus... - Kristen Tracy Camille McPhee Has a lot to deal with: the constant threat of low blood sugar; her health freak, home/self-improvement obsessed mom's mid-life crisis; best friend Sally Zook's relocation to Japan, science classes that are too advanced for fifth grade; and a pair of bullies responsible for her recent fall under the school bus. Thank God she has "great, thick, caramel brown, movie star hair" and a plant to fly under the radar like the brilliant dingo she saw at the zoo, 'cause Camille's life is about to get more hectic than she ever imagined.

Kristen Tracey's CAMILLE MCPHEE FELL UNDER THE BUS is a charming debut featuring a sarcastic, spunky heroine dealing with the trials and tribulations facing many children today. While not specifically "issue oriented" CAMILLE MCPHEE addresses topics like the possibility of divorce, debt, the indifference of a self-centered teacher, alienation from one's peers, bullying, and death. Ms. Tracey shows Camille facing her problems head on with her own unique brand of grit, intelligence and determination, making this book one for the keeper shelf.
