From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray comes the hilarious (and sometimes twisted) story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.

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 sure you never see beauty the same way again.

This book was highly entertaining, with engaging, enjoyable characters. Though the end was satisfying, its in-your-face empowerment was annoying. Read full review
