Narrator Jenna Lamia’s characterizations are key to the success of this audio production as 10-year-old Raymie hatches a plan to win back her father, who has recently deserted her family. An attempt to win the title of Little Miss Central Florida leads to baton-twirling classes and to making friends with two other girls. Together they become the “three rancheros.” Lamia’s portrayal of introspective, uncertain Raymie contrasts with those of outspoken Beverly Tapinski and soft-spoken storyteller Louisiana Elefante. The adventures of three girls trying to find their places in the world are set in a small town populated by quirky characters. Lamia’s deft sketches, especially those of Raymie’s neighbor, an elderly philosopher, and the comforting receptionist at Raymie’s father’s office, add color to the story.
