Book giveaway: Raymie Nightingale
This giveaway is sponsored by Walker Books
Three girls. One summer. The friendship that rescues them all.
Raymie Clarke has come to realize that everything, absolutely everything, depends on her. If Raymie can win the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, then her father – who has run away with a dental hygienist – will see her picture in the paper and (maybe) come home. To win, not only does she 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. 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.
A truly heartfelt book, perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson and Katherine Rundell.
