In her seventh novel, international bestselling author and twice winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal Kate DiCamillo tells a masterful story that blends pathos and humour.

Raymie Clarke has come to realize that everything, absolutely everything, depends on her. And she has a plan. If Raymie can win the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, then her father - who has run away with a dental hygienist - will see Raymie's picture in the paper and (maybe) come home.

To win, not only does Raymie have to do good deeds and learn how to twirl a baton, but she has to compete with the wispy, frequently fainting Louisiana Elefante with her show-business background and the fiery, stubborn Beverly Tapinski, who's determined to sabotage the contest.

But as the competition approaches, loneliness, loss and unanswerable questions draw the three girls into an unlikely friendship - and challenge them to come to each other's rescue in unexpected ways.

    My Daughter "devoured" it.

    Holy Guacamole, what a book!

    I genuinely read this entire thing with cheese-eating ear-to-ear grin. It's delightfully funny. The often heart-breaking situation Raymie and her wayward friends is mostly oblivious to them as they hurtle towards disaster carrying the reader deeper into their world of ridiculousness.

    All the characters are female but I think there's joy for boys and girls reading this book along with us older kids too.

    Brilliant.
