The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream Pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.

What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tour guide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensational, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make you never see beauty the same way again.

However, as impressed as I was by this book, I did think it tried to tackle too man...

4.5- audiobook5- narrationWhat a fun unexpected read this was. I struggled through the first 20% not sure if it was a comedy or what. I went into this book with no knowledge of what it was really about, it was recommended by a friend. I would not have read it normally, the blurb sounds like somethin...

4.0 Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
13/4 - I'm really surprised this has such a low average rating, it's fantastic satire and I'm loving it! This is Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series for pop culture followers, instead of literary references to Dickens and Ulysses this book has jokes about Fabio (maybe that could still be considered...
