    "India Wimple can spell. Brilliantly. Every Friday night, she and her family huddle in front of the TV in their small house and watch the Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee. When her family suggest she should enter the next Bee, she shrugs it off, saying being on TV is only for rich and pretty people. Her family won't hear it and encourage India to sign up. But there are plenty of obstacles to reaching the finals: something in her past has made India terribly, horribly shy, the Wimples aren't very well off, and moving on to each round involves finding the money to make it happen. Then there's her little brother, who's been sick since he was a baby. And finally, there's Summer Millicent Ernestine Beauregard-Champion, a spoilt rich girl who is also a champion speller u and Summer isn't afraid to step on anyone who gets in her way."

    Gleebooks review:
    Considering the success of a certain TV programme, this novel is very timely, although shyness doesn’t seem to be an attribute of Australia’s real little language aficionados. ‘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.’
