Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: May 24, 2011
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Summary: From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island. Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to emall. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.
My Thoughts: Beauty Queens sounds awesome! Everything from the cover to the summary builds a world I'd love to read about. Especially the whole "Lost" island feel. Being a huge fan of that TV show, seeing it in a new, twisted way would simply be fun and exciting! Too bad it won't be out until May 2011. :(
