Synopsis

"Chocolate Chocolate Moons," a comic mystery set in the future, tells the story of plus sized Molly Marbles, who wins a scholarship to Armstrong University on the Moon, where her weight drops from 287 Earth pounds to 47.6 without passing up a piece of pie.
But when her boyfriend Drew Barron dumps her and jumps at a job at Congress Drugs, a company that makes low calorie food supplements, Molly’s weight is the least of her woes. And, when her favorite chocolate treat, Chocolate Moons are poisoned and others fall prey, the plot thickens and hijinks ensue.
With a good-natured poke at ups and downs of dieting, Chocolate Chocolate Moons is a verbal cartoon for sophisticated readers tired of counting calories and hungry for a good laugh.
