My anxiously awaited title this week is:
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Publication Date: May 24, 2011 by Scholastic
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 email. 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.
This book sounds like it will be fiercely entertaining. Seems like everyone who's read an advanced copy has thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus, John Green gives it high praise, and that says enough right there.
