Michele Cytron Linde & James Linde Campbellabout this book: A true story of year in the life of James, a troublemaking third grader whose headmaster had his mom's cell phone number on speed dial; led skipping Shakespeare class with his friends, and worked his hardest to figure out how to keep his mom, a busy corporate lawyer from traveling for work and spending so much time at the office. James' mom is hardly conventional when it comes to raising James and together they set out to figure out how to make life work for everyone. James and his mom also share some personal challenges that need to be solved. Life gets more interesting by the day as the school year goes on and it isn't always James who breaks the rules. But James and his mom learn about the important things in life together, through some adventures and before long they are the A team and James is giving his mom parenting advice.
A true and tender story that will help young readers relate to family issues and the challenges of pre-teens in a post 9-11 world, school shootings and violence are everywhere and children are exposed to more on the internet than we ever imagined would be possible. Is it possible for a third grader and his mom to master the art of work and school life balance and achieve joy, success and unbreakable bonding through adventures and some creative new parenting tips? James is now 19 and together with his mom they reflect on a critical year that changed their lives. They share their story now, with children who have parents who travel for business, perhaps struggle with personal issues at home, and for parents who find themselves looking for ways to manage pre-teens, technology and the quest for time.
We invite our readers into our lives for the first time in the hopes that they connect with James and work with their parents and caregivers to overcome challenges, communicate and make their dreams a reality.
