MoonPies and Movie Stars is Amy Wallen’s snappy, sassy, and sensational debut novel. A hysterical romp across the Southwest, it pits a spunky Texan mom against the star-studded power of Hollywood.

While watching television one day, Ruby Kincaid catches sight of her runaway daughter Violet in a commercial. Quicker than a jackrabbit, Ruby makes up her mind to head straight for Tinseltown and reclaim her wayward daughter—even if she has to lasso her.

    " I guess this qualifies as chick lit, but the author hosts an open mic I've attended a few times. So I figured I'd give it a try, and it wasn't painful. She keeps the plot moving along well. The primary characters are clearly drawn. I'm a bit ambivalent about the ending. I like that it's not the obvious cliche ending, but it seemed a bit abrupt after 300-plus pages. "
