A heart-warming story about a girl who's too
afraid to follow her dreams, and the family who help make them happen.
India Wimple can
spell. Brilliantly. Every Friday night, she and her family watch the
Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee. When the Wimples suggest she enter the
next Bee, India says she's not good enough – but her family won't hear it and
encourage her to sign up.
There are plenty of obstacles to reaching the finals: something in India's past
has made her terribly shy, and moving on to each round involves finding the
money to make it happen.
And finally, there's Summer Millicent Ernestine Beauregard-Champion, a spoilt
rich girl who is determined to win – and isn't afraid to step on anyone who
gets in her way.
