For her project, Charlotte, a senior at Covenant Day School in Matthews, decided to write a book to help other children understand their feelings. She based it on a play she has watched every summer since she was 9, at the Chameleon’s Journey camp for grieving children, sponsored by Hospice and Palliative Care Charlotte Region. She first went to the camp in 2006, the year her brother died. She loved the play, also called “Chameleon’s Journey,” that started each week of camp. It tells the story of Chameleon, who liked to change his colors at will. But when his friend dies, he becomes confused about why he can no longer control his colors, changing from angry red to sad blue to jealous green.
