Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo

Ten-year-old Raymie’s dad has run away with a dental hygienist. Raymie can’t make him return unless, she reasons, he sees her photo in the paper as the baton-twirling winner (she’s never twirled a baton) of the Miss Central Florida Tire Competition of 1975. Two other girls covet this prize, each for their own similarly unreasoned reasons. The three girls become loyal friends and, without winning a contest, win a respite by rescuing each other. Droll, heartbreaking, and ultimately triumphant. Grades 4–7. - Ga
