With glue guns, glitter, twigs, or yarn, the ordinary can become extraordinary especially at La Pachanga. Owned by Estrella “Star” Esteban’s family, the restaurant has a reputation for two things: good food and great art. La Pachanga brings people together, even when it looks like they couldn’t be further apart.

One ill-fated evening, Star jeopardizes her family’s business, her relationship with her boyfriend, and her future career. To redeem herself, she agrees to participate in a national craft competition, teaming up with her best friend, Ofelia, a secretly troubled mother whose love for crafting borders on obsession, and local celebrity Chloe Chavez, a determined television personality with more than one skeleton in her professional closet. If these unlikely allies can set aside their differences, they’ll find strength they never knew they had, and learn that friendship, like crafting, is truly an art form.

    " This was a light and fun book to read with a valuable lesson about love and friendship built in and the bonus of shiny, sparkly things scattered throughout. I enjoyed it. "

    " Although, in the end, I did like the book as a whole, I had to fight myself to keep reading it at the beginning. I think the characters are too way over the top at the beginning. This in itself made me want to put it down and take it off my Kindle. However, I wanted to give it a really good chance because I follow the author's blog and think she is very talented, so I stuck with it. I'm glad I did but I'm wondering how many other people will give it that extra chance. "
