From the author of the Project (Un)Popular series and Too Cool For This School, a fun middle school story about a girl determined to make the best of any situation.
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:
a nonsqueaky mattress
eating banned foods
the big blue butterfly
Even making a new friend. Imagine that!
"This book about friendship and loss kindly teaches that life is pretty much what one is willing to make of it." --School Library Journal, starred review
"[A] touching debut." --Kirkus Reviews
