Star's parents own La Pachanga, a trendy restaurant that showcases local Arizona artists. Everything is going well for Star, promoting the restaurant and their artist until one night of one too many drinks. One reckless act could cost Star everything including Theo.
To make amends with her parents Star agrees to participate in the national craft competition. This is humbling since Star has always looked down on crafting. Ofie Star's best friend loves crafting. No one has the heart to tell Ofie her crafts are awful. Chloe Chavez, aka Crafty Chloe Chavez, is a local news celebrity determined to be a larger then life personality like Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart. Crafty Chloe has a big secret that might keep this from happening.
The three women find themselves working together for the national craft competition on behalf of La Pachanga. Waking Up in the Land of Glitter was some serious fun. I smiled my way through it and laughed a lot. The characters were very likable and well drawn. I loved the men of interest. If you are looking for something, light, fun and funny, I highly recommend Waking Up in the Land of Glitter. It's a must read for anyone who has ever lived in Arizona or loves crafting. Or loves to laugh.
