A glittering explosion of laughs sparkle throughout Beth Henley's story of one small Mississippi town's biggest annual celebration: the 4th of July Festival and beauty pageant. Carnelle Scott is feverishly rehearsing her patriotic tap dance for the Miss Firecracker Contest--hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation and allow her to leave town in a blaze of glory.

The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker winner, complicates matters, as does Elain's eccentric brother, Delmount. But, aided by an awkward seamstress named Popeye and several other cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle's efforts culminate in a hilarious firework-worthy finish!
