See below for English description. Raymie Clarke r�alise que tout, mais absolument tout, d�pend d'elle. Et elle a un plan. Si Raymie gagne le concours Little Miss Central Florida Tire, alors son p�re, qui a quitt� la ville il y a deux jours avec une hygi�niste dentaire, verra la photo de Raymie dans les journaux et il reviendra � la maison. Pour gagner, non seulement Raymie doit faire de bonnes actions et apprendre � manier le b�ton, mais elle doit aussi composer avec la toute menue Louisina Elefante qui s'�vanouit constamment et qui a de l'exp�rience dans le monde du spectacle, et la f�roce et ent�t�e Beverly Tapinski qui est d�termin�e � saboter le concours. � l'approche du concours, la solitude, le deuil et des questions sans r�ponses possibles cr�ent entre les trois filles des liens d'amiti� insolites et mettent au d�fi chacune d'entre elles de venir � la rescousse de fa�ons inattendues. 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.
