Beauty Queens

Lord of the Flies girl style. That’s exactly what Beauty Queens, Libba Bray’s new book, appears to be.  But, as I read further, I found it was so much more than just 50 Beauty Pageant contenders marooned on a deserted island.  Full of sarcasm and political satire, Beauty Queens forces the reader to take a good look at their own life and ask themselves, am I the bad guy in this story? Beauty Queens will keep you reading until the end, and keep you thinking long after you close the book.  Hold on tight to your hardcover for this one, and be warned, you may smudge your eyeliner!
