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 left town two days ago 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; she also has to contend with the wispy, frequently fainting Louisiana Elefante, who has a 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 each of them to come to the rescue in unexpected ways.

Honest and Heartwarming
Where does Raymie Nightingale rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The narrator, Jenna Lamia, is one of the best I've ever heard. In fact, reading the hard copy would be a miss for the way she brings these characters to life with her multiple voice characterizations, inflections, and spot-on nuances. The story is refreshingly simple on the surface, yet such a poignant and honest reflection on "life" through these eyes of three very different 10 year olds.

What does Jenna Lamia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I loved her soft, slightly Southern accent. Perfect for this book.
