The Miss Firecracker Contest
The Miss Firecracker Contest, by Beth Henley, is set in the small town of Brookhaven, Mississippi and centers around its annual beauty pageant, the titular Miss Firecracker Contest.  Carnelle is trying out for the pageant as a way to elevate her somewhat tarnished reputation.  Together with her recently retuning cousins, Elain and Delmount, she is determined to leave her small town life behind her in a blaze of glory.  Meanwhile, Popeye, her seamstress, has fallen in love with Delmount, but hides her feelings behind stories of her eccentric life.  Once they all make it to the contest, they meet up with Mac Sam and Tessy, two characters that have an intimate knowledge of two of our protagonists.  It all comes to a head with the crowning of the one and only Miss Firecracker and the yearly fireworks display.
