Summary (From the publisher):

May Lynn is a pretty girl who dreams of becoming a Hollywood star. Until her dead body is dredged up from the Sabine River.

Sue Ellen, May Lynn's strong-willed teenage friend, and her pals Terry and Jinx set out to dig up May Lynn's body, burn it to ash, and take the ashes to Hollywood. If May Lynn can't become a star, then at least her remains can be spread in the land of her dreams.

All they need is some money and a raft; while the raft is easily available, stealing the money requires strong gumption, but they manage it. Then they head downriver together with Sue Ellen's agoraphobic mother, a motley crew on a mission.

Pursued by Uncle Gene and Constable Sy, who are after the money, and Skunk, an all-too-real legendary killer who's after their lives, they begin to understand that when you set out to make the dreams of a friend your own, your worst nightmare might come along for the ride.
