Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo

Into the Wild

Read Raymie Nightingale Online Free - 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.

I thought this book was wonderful. I don't read a lot of middle grade these days. I have my childhood favourites that will always hold a special place in my heart, but I rarely seek out new ones. It's hard for me to engage with most juvenile writing styles and I often find them too simplistic. But...

Raymie wants her father back. He left her and her mother, and that’s not alright. He shouldn’t have left with that dental hygienist. His place was with Raymie and her mama. She misses him, and she wants him to come back. She knows just the right way to make him come home: she’s going to compete in...

Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Y’all might as well just leave this space and go read Alissa’s review because she’s the only reason I even heard of Raymie Nightingale in the first place. I don’t read a lot of middle-grade stuff – mainly because my kids have pretty muc...

I have a feeling this will be one of those books that will grow in fondness the more that time passes, but as of right now, I'm feeling kind of "meh" about it. I liked the characters of Raymie, Beverly, and Louisiana, but something in the story felt lacking to me.

¡Gracias, Raymie, por sacarme de mi parón lector! Resulta que El verano de Raymie Nightingale llevaba pendiente desde antes de que saliera a la venta, pero por unas razones u otras, nunca era el momento. Pero miré a la estantería y cogí el primer libro que mi corazón me pidió para el momento, y gr...

Dear Ms. diCamillo, As a girl who clipped my grandma's toenails and biked, weekly, terrified, to Southport Manor Nursing Home to volunteer as Cheerful Board Games Assistant, as a girl with the weight of my sorrowful, lonely soul blowing around inside me night and day-- as I believe it still does,...

My relationship to Kate DiCamillo’s books is one built entirely on meaning. Which is to say, the less emotional and meaningful they are, the better I like ‘em. Spaghetti loving horses and girls that live in tree houses? Right up my alley! China rabbits and mice with excessive earlobes? Not my cup...

I'm glad I read this book, not because I liked it or learned anything, but because it vindicates my childhood dislike of juvenile "literary" novels. An odd jumble of ideas barely grounded in reality, this book attempts to be poetic and meaningful but twists in on itself to become a vague, pointle...

I know this is going to be a minority opinion, but I found this a little boring. My expectations were really high, so I was surprised it took me so long to read. I didn't feel a lot of motivation to go back to it when I put it down. Maybe because there wasn't much of a plot and the whole thing fe...

Not to worry --- no spoilers here. Just an excerpt from this blog post of mine, giving a sense of what is in store. In Raymie Nightingale out this April, this uniquely talented writer has returned to her roots, to the Florida of her childhood, centering on an imagined small town that feels just d...
