Camille McPhee Fell Under the BusAuthor: Kristen Tracy (on JOMB)
Published: 2009 Random House (on JOMB)
ISBN: 9780385736879

A big thanks to guest host Lucy (10) for joining Andrea today to discuss this book.

Life can be challenging and fair’s got nothing to do with it. Parents are people. Friendship’s a worthwhile risk. There’s a lot to think about when you’re ten in the real world. Which is why I’m so glad Lucy (10) and I read this fun and fabulously thought provoking book.

I loved this! Thanks, Lucy and Andrea. I’m so glad you liked Camille. Your comments were so thoughtful. Yes. I know she should have been nicer to Polly. But we all have room to grow. Thanks again for the nice comments. It almost makes falling underneath my own school bus worth the experience. Almost.

Rock on! Kristen Tracy
